It can take anywhere from days to 18 months for your period to return after stopping Depo Provera. Taking the Birth Control pill doesn't change that timing -- the birth control pill doesn't "jump start" or "regulate" your period after stopping Depo Provera. Remember that you can get pregnant before your period restarts, so if you don't want to conceive right now, get on an effective method of birth control.

Depending on the type of birth control and how long you were taking it before stopping it can take up to 18 months for your cycles to return to normal. I personally was on depoprovera for 2 years after my first child and after stopping did not menstruate for 13 months afterwords. Later I went back on depo for about a year and it took six months for my periods to begin again after stopping that time. If you are sexually active you should probably take a pregnancy test every two months until your periods begin again as you will ovulate about 2 weeks before your first period and could conceive at that time without realizing it.

A short period is common when stopping hormonal birth control. Your regular period should return in four to six weeks.

Your first period after stopping birth control pills will normally arrive in 4-6 weeks. If your periods were irregular before you went on the pill, they're likely to return quickly to their previous irregular pattern.

Yes it is possible to experience an irregular menstral cycle when you discontinue taking birth control. This is because when you take birth control it actually regulates your period. By stopping birth control you may experience breakthrough bleeding. Breakthrough bleeding is when you menstruate at times when you normally would not begin your menstral cycle. Breakthrough bleeding can possibly last for up to a full period or longer. Stopping birth control may also stop your period for a month or longer or you may not receive your period around the normal time of which you used to when you were taking your birth control.It depends sometimes you're period gets normal after birth control but sometimes it may still keep being irregular. It depends on the person and or pills
