I got my first Depo shot in November. I started bleeding a week or two after and it hasn't stopped since. My scheduled date for the second shot was around Jan 21 but I chose to stop it because the bleeding is super annoying and persistent. I just want to know when will the bleeding stop? Will it be soon since I've only had one shot?
No matter how many shots you've had, it can take months or sometimes years (in some cases, including my own) to get regular periods back after Depo Provera. I can vouch for that. The Manufacturer advises it can take up to 18 months to regain fertility.
When you start Depo Provera, it can take 2 or 3 shots before the irregular bleeding stops. That is normal/common.
