On Feb. 14, 2014, at age 28, I took my first depo-provera birth control shot. I didn't care for the side effects and 25 of weight gain so I never took another shot in 12 weeks. I didn't get my period until Nov.1-10, 2014. (8 months later) Today Nov. 16. 2014. My body decided to have another period. Is this normal? Anyone else have similar experiences from your first and only depo shot? Should I take the herb Dong Quai to regulate my hormones? Should I do a vaginal steam?
