Hi I was on depo for one shot had my period while i was on the shot for about 2 weeks now I didn't want to go get another round so about a week after i was supposed to go back and get my shot i got my period meaning this was back in august middle/late august and i still have my period its been over a month. Is this normal to have my period for this long before depo my period was 4-6 days long only. This is really a nuiscence...Any suggestions advice anything would be greatly appreciated! [Big Grin]

Depending on the lady, some experience a total lack of periods, irregular periods, or constant bleeding.

Check in with your GYN as soon as you can and let her know what's going on.

In a nutshell, Depo is a pretty strong wallop of hormones thrown into your system at once. It'll take your body a while to adjust - from a few to several weeks. BUT constant bleeding is not something you should ignore. If you got your next shot late, that could be a possible culprit.
