I've been taking the Lunelle shot for about 6 months now. I haven't gotten my period since I started taking it (I know I'm not pregnant) and I just wanted to know if that was normal. I haven't really said anything to my doctor because she doesn't ask. Other then not getting my period the shot works fine.

First of all, it's your responsibility to ask your doctor when you have concerns about how your birth control is working. Whether she asks you about it or not, if it's a concern for you then you are the one responsible for making sure the issue gets discussed. So I'd suggest calling your doctor and asking some questions.

According the the Lunelle patient information brochure found on the Lunella website

quote:
You may not menstruate regularly after you receive an injection of LUNELLETM Monthly Contraceptive Injection. If you have received your injections regularly and miss one menstrual period, be sure to inform your health care provider. The risk of unexpected pregnancy forwomen receiving injectable contraceptives as scheduled is very low.
If you have not received your injections as scheduled and missed a menstrual period, or if you missed two consecutive menstrual periods, you may be pregnant. Check with your health care provider immediately to determine whether you are pregnant. Do not continue the
injections until you are sure you are not pregnant, but use another method of contraception.

there was a lunelle thread already in place http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum21/HTML/000102.html

and call your doctor because there is a recall notice in place for Lunelle.
