Question How long before period comes back after Depo?

I have been off of the depo shot for about 4 1/2 months now, and still no periods. I had one that was more like brown spotting which lasted like two days about 2 months ago. I was wondering if any of you could tell me about how long it took you to get back to having periods again after the shot. I am 22. I was on the shot for about nine months and then I stopped getting it because I was experiencing about every bad side effect you can get from it......but anyway, could someone please tell me about how long it took you to get your periods back?

Re: How long before period comes back after Depo?


Unforuntely there's really no time table on when it will come back. I read on Upjohn's website it could take up to a year for the depo to leave your system. I have been on since Nov. of 2003 and had my last shot on Dec. 15th of 2004. About to two weeks ago I spotted very little for a couple of days. I was suppose to have a shot on March 4th but decide not to cause of the side effects I was having,and had the Paragard IUD put in on this past Tues. I started spotting on Thursday and it been heavy bleeding since than. I suggest maybe seeing your doctor to make sure that your hormones are in balance and maybe go on the pill to kick start your period again. Good luck.
