I was on the Depo-shot for almost 11 years and finally decided to stop. Was due for a shot in June and didn't get it. Got my period back the first week of October.. Hasn't stopped yet. It's been almost a month. I'm very concerned and don't have health insurance to see my Dr.. are there any natural remedies for this?
Same happened to me. Had a D&C & other medical procedures & nothing worked for long. Bled for best part of 2 years.
The next time I tried to stop the Shot, I used a natural remedy called agnus castus (Vitex). I still use it now, as it's been so effective. You can't use it at the same time as hormonal contraception, but otherwise there are no side effects.
Should sort you out within a few months.
