Every woman's body is different. The nurse told me it would take 3 months. I haven't had a period for the entire time I have been on the depo shot. But.. I have had the vaginal discharge that is sort of rare. The nurse also told me if/when you do have your first period after starting the depo shot, it can last up to 3 weeks.

Is it normal to get your period even when i am getting the depot shot for a year

If you use the depo shot correctly it will work automatically what I mean by correctly is getting the shot during your cycle I would suggest getting the shot during the first day of your period :)

The depo shot prevents you from having a period. Its nothing to worry about.

After the last shot of Depo Provera, it can take over 6 months for the drug to leave the body.But you should start another form of birth control after 6-12 weeks after your last shot.

No its not possible only if you were pregnant before you took the shot. some wome who take the shot don't get a period at all after the shot because of the hormones. It takes you 6-12 months to get a period again after you took the first shop and even longer if you are try to conceive after the shot because even if your 3 monts is up the homone is still in your system.

it is not a period it is heavy spotting.

There is no estrogen in Depo Provera. It contains only progestin. The 3-month shot contains 150 mg of depot-medroxyprogesterone.

its different for everybody, it took me 6 months to have a period after getting off the shot (was on it 4 yrs) and concieved a baby the month after getting my period.

I was on the Depo shot for a year and didnt get my period at all.It just one of the many symptoms that come with getting the shot!

No. You will know when you are ovulating, b/c you don't when your on the shot. That's how you don't get pregnant. The first time you ovulate after stopping the shot it might be painful, or just be sensitive where your overies are. It took me about a year after getting off the shot to ovulate, i thought i was going to die. good luck

Can a woman get her firs depo shot 6 days after her period?

"Yes you do i was on my period when i got my first shot an I've been on the shot for one year an i not had a period since" This is incorrect, they advise you to get the shot when your on your period as they need to be sure your not pregnant when you have the shot. If you've had your menstrual cycle but have not had sex since, they will still allow you to have the shot. Then you'll have to wait a certain amount of time until your protected. (they told me 7 days and this was 4 days after coming off my period) but the length of time may have something to do with where you are in your cycle.

The first shot of Depo Provera is usually given during or a few days after the start of a menstrual period.

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking. If you just started getting the depo shot and are wondering why you haven't had any periods yet that is normal. I have been on the shot for 2 1/2 years and haven't had a period since the first shot. I get a little spotting but that is it!

I had mine for almost 3 weeks straight about 2 weeks after getting the shot. It wasnt a regular period but yet still a period. I was suppose to get the shot again March is now the 25th without getting another shot...I'm having horrible cramps with the same period I had in the beginning, so for now I'm guessing until it "wears off" that my period will be irregular.

Yes, this is a normal "side effect" of depo. My menses also stopped after my first shot.

the first time i got the shot i was okay on not having my period for the first two months then i spotted until my next shot. I'm due for my 3rd shot, and this time it was only a week-2weeks (i lost track). but its just spotting, not like my usual period.

Not necessarily, I was on depot and my period stopped immediately, but after a week or so it started up and I had my period everyother week.

The first shot of Depo Provera is usually given during or a few days after the start of a menstrual period.

Depending on how your body works it can..I bleed for a whole month after getting the shot,but haven't had a period since. I started mines in September 2011 haven't had it since October. .

Signs that you CAN get pregnant after the shot? Getting your period for one. It take several months for the shot to get out of your system (although it has happen sooner for some women).
