Don't worry, this is a totally normal side effect from coming off depo. For a lot of women it takes MONTHS (like you did) to get your period again, and then when they do it it its random bleeding, and very heavy. It should go back to normal fairly soon. This month might be weird bleeding, you might bleed a lot and very heavy, but hopefully within the next month or so,it should go back to normal.
