I’m on the Depo shot & I didn’t have my period for 2 months & im a little worried because if the shot works for 3 months but I got the shot in February and the doctor said to go back in May.. is the shot wearing off & that’s why I have the brown discharge?
You can't. It's common with Depo, especially until you've had 2 or 3 shots.
You can get any hormonal symptoms that you'd get with a period or pregnancy, for example.
You can try getting the doctor to put more artificial hormones into your body, but even that can go either way (it could turn into heavy bleeding), or give other hormonal symptoms.
This is all very common with going onto Depo. I assume you read of all the risks before committing to it; the minor ones like irregular bleeding, as well as the serious ones.
