Hey everyone! My name is Jenny and my DH and I are ttc#2.
My depo shot was suppsed to have worn off by about this week (third month after the shot) and I only had ONE depo shot ever in my life. I didn't like it. Now that we going to ttc I wonder when my AF is going to get regular again. I am on cd 35 and had what I thought was the beginning of my period two days ago. However I have had no flow since then...just a little that day. Could I be pregnant? I know that is a silly question and I probably am not given the fact the depo was supposed to have just worn off this week..however I was on some meds that can reduce the effect of birth control. I am debating on if I should waste a test or not. And has anyone else had problems with their cycles getting regular after even one shot of depo?
Yes, i was on depo for 5 years and have been off it a year now and still no af.
I was reading on a site related to depo that it doesnt matter if you have one shot or fifty shots it depends on your body as and when it is going to allow af to arrive and pregnancy to take place! I have an appointment on Tuesday with a specialist to see what is happening with my system.
I can honestly say that i do not know when af will return and nobody does, its just luck, there has been people on this board who have had af 2 months after being off the shot and others i have heard of who have been pregnant not long after recieving there last shot.
Thank you for your reply Sammie! I just am so excited that I wish I would have never gotten that shot now that I am experiencing no af. I mean af is a pain but as long as she is coming regularly ya know when she should be here.
My last depo shot was at the start of April 04, and no AF yet either.
in the past it has taken me 12 months & 18 months for AF to return after last shots, so it can vary from time to time for the same person as well.
