... too. I started spotting on Dec 3 it was brown that happened for 2 weeks. Now I'm bleeding for 2 weeks. My 12 week mark would have been yesterday Dec 29. But I didn't get it. Can I start to take a birth control pil? Will this bleeding stop soon? I'm going into a severe depression over this.
Yes you can start birth control pills.
Everyone is different as for how long it takes to get back to normal after Depo Provera. Even if you've just had the 1 shot, it can take up to 18 months to regain your fertility (although for some it happens much faster).
Your body was just starting to adjust to the hormone in the shot (which can take 2 or 3 shots, & then many women find they get no bleeding at all whilst on it) & you came off it, so now it's having to try to adjust all over again. You could well find that your hormones & menstrual cycle are unpredictable for months.
Hopefully you will be lucky & settle back down more quickly.
