... August 1st and unlike a lot of people my period returned 9 days after I did not get the next shot. My period has continued for the past 20+ days. Its not a normal period and will range from a heavy orange colored flow to a light flow that is brown. I am also having pains in my side right below my ribs. Has anyone else had these same problems after stopping depo?
