I started my first period when I was 16 and my mom put me on the birth control pills right away. But that was making me bleed everyday, so I got put on the depo shot. After my first shot, I didn't have any bleeding. I'm 18 now and told my mom that I wanted to get off of it but my stepfather didn't think that was a good idea. But aren't you supposed to go on for two years then of for a year? I'm only scared of what's going to h happen because I I've never used a tampon before. Please leave comments and suggestions. Thank you.
