I was given the depo- provera shot while off my cycle. I was given a pregnancy test the same day and it was negative. The date of the test and shot was July 15th today, is the July29th. The last period I had ended on the June 27th. I have took a pregnancy test which was negative yesterday ( July 28th) and I am worried with only 2 questions not even the internet, doctor, or nurses can answer. Question 1: Since I received the shot while off my cycle, is it normal to have no period at all? Question 2: When will the shot be completely in my system and working since I took the shot off my cycle? Please answer this question I'm clueless about the depo shot. :(
Help! I'm a 1st time user to the depo shot and I was given the shot off my cycle. I'm clueless!?

I only took the shot once and I regret that! You should definitely do your research and please know the shot is going to ruin your life.
Yes it’s normal to not have a period on the shot. It’s actually what the shot is intended for. Even if you e o my taken the shot once, and then didn’t get it again... your period may not come back for a year or longer...
Side effects that people usually deal with are extreme fatigue, severe moodiness, estrogen somninance, thinning hair and hair loss( hair falling out ALOT), headaches, loss of bone density( osteoporosis is caused by this shot sometimes), complete loss of sex drive, anxiety... and the list goes on!
I’d advise to nevertheless get another shot... google the effects... and see what other say...
There is also. Support group on Facebook for the side effects of this shot.
Yes it is normal for you to have no periods. Ive been on the depo shot for almost a year and had no periods. The only bad thing about it is you gain A LOT of weight. Ive gained 95 pounds because of the shot.
Hey I've got my first depo and I'm going they the same thing got it while off my period on the 26 of July and still haven't gotten my period just been very hungry
I don't have an answer Im really looking for an answer I went off my period the end of May had sex June 1st and got my depo shot June 6 can I be pregnant or did the depo shot stop my period?
It takes 7 days to completely be in your system and 60% of women don't have a period whilst on it
I took the depo shot for the first time I am 25 .I had not had a period fot five years or so and now I got it within a few days of the depo shot but it is and had been heavy from day one and now it will be ten days tomorrow and still same what should I do.
I was supposed to get my period in a day or two but the doctors office gave me the depo a head of time, will I still get my period? This was my first depo shot ever
Its in ur system a week after u get the depot but I always wait 2 weeks just to be safe. Yes it is common to not have one for awhile.
I've been on the depo for nearly 2 years now and I havent had one bit of bleeding since the first time I received it, everyone's different though I know people who have bled for months at a time.
Hi I had a little boy 9 week ago I finished my first period on the 29th of November and had my first depo shot on the second of December wich was the Tuesday I had unprotected sed on the Saturday am I coverd? Xx
I also got my depo shot while off my cycle. Once you've taken the shot you will not get pregnant, if you plan to get pregnant then you should stop taking the shot, if you stopped taking the shot and you want to become pregnant you need to wait 6 months to a year once you've taken the depo shot you will not get pregnant.
