I got the depo shot about 5 months ago and my boyfriend dumped me shortly afterwards so I saw no point in getting the shot again as I'm not sexually active at the moment
Anyway, after I stopped the shot my period had been super messed up! I get it for like 3 days then it stops and then I randomly get it again! It's so annoying because it is so random and I always have to wear a tampon or pad in case I leak :/ it's so annoying and I'm sure it's because of the injection! Anybody know how to stop it and make it regular again?? Anybody had the same experience as me?? :-/ it's so annoying ahah

Hi there,

The side effects of depo can last many months after you stop using it, and those side effects include spotting or unpredictable periods. The best person for you to talk to about making your cycle more regular is your healthcare provider.
