I have been on depo birth control for 4 years I got my last shot last October (2016) so now my cycle has finally came on and it’s been on for 9 straight days. In November I spotted for maybe 3 days also in may. I just don’t know what’s going on. I’m ready to have sex!!
This is common after Depo. Everyone is affected differently, so it's impossible to know how it will effect you. It's just a case of waiting to see.
Your menstrual cycle runs from the first day of your period, until the day before your next period.
This could be all over the place for some time, as your body tries to rebalance itself after the artificial hormone in Depo Provera.
