If any of you have taken the Depo Shot how long are your periods lasting? I got my shot two and a half weeks ago, and for the past two weeks ive been on my period. Just wondering if its ever going to be over.
i have good experience w/ depo stuff. i worked w/ it a lot and was on it for yrs,and back on it now.
if you ask your doc, they will tell you that you need to try a few shots, okay so 9 months?! of bleeding, to see what your body is going to do. in my experience w/ it, once you get your second shot, if your still bleeding, you will and unless you want to try and wait it out longer, your going to need to check into another type of bc.
like i said, i am not always right, but i have a good amt of experience w/ this bc.
Everyone reacts differently. It's a very aggressive drug, hits the reproductive system hard - so some experience spotting/bleeding the whole time they are on it, others find that AF disappears altogether and even stays away for months after they discontinue the shots.
Sorry to jump in here, but I also have this fear of depo. I got a shot back in Nov. 08 after a loss and I spotted off and on for the whole three months...no full blown period, but enough to annoy the heck out of me, so I didn't get my second injection. It took 3-4 months for my cycles to get back to normal.
So anyway, yesterday I went in and am giving depo another try. My relationship circumstances are different and I know it'll be at least a year, if not two before I have another baby. I asked my doctor about the spotting and she said that if I continued to spot after my second injection that I'll probably spot while on depo period. So please cross your fingers for me. I'm prepared for three months of spotting, but am hoping that it'll stop after my second injection, if that's even what happens this time around.
