I've been on Depo-Provera for about a month now. I was wondering if anyone else here is or has ever been on Depo. What were your experiences with the shot? The worst part for me has been the irregular bleeding. I've been on my period for like a week and a half! lol It's not so bad though.

I don't know to much about it but i know that it's supposed to stop your period, i've been wondering about it too. i kinda want to get it, i know for everyone the results are different and some people get there period for like a mo. before it stops for good, or sometimes it still comes but only for a couple days and it's really light....i'm not sure....but i suffer majorly w/my period so thats why i want to get it. I don't think my mom wants me to cuz shes afraid since i've been w/erik for about 5 1/2 mo. now i may use the shot to it's "full potential" but that definitly isn't in my plan....although erik would be happy!

It won't necessarily stop your period. Actually, the results in that area can be incredibly unpredictable, so this is generally used only for birth control.
