I M 21 year old and that was the first and last depo.will leaving depo will stop my bleeding.? And how it might take for me to stop this bleeding???
Unfortunately, if you miss your next shot, things could get worse rather than better. It takes most people 2-3 shots to stop spotting or bleeding, & settle onto Depo. Your body has just started to adjust, & if you don't get your next shot, then your body has to start readjusting, & you may well find the bleeding gets heavier & lasts some months. Everyone is different, so it's hard to know exactly how it will effect you, but it can be worth sticking with Depo until you've had at least 3 shots, to see if it stops your periods all together.
It can take up to 18 months to get your fertility back, once stopping Depo.
