I recieved my first depo shot in september. My doctor said I most likely wouldn't have a period, since I had been on the shot before and never had a period but .I got it while I was on my period and the bleeding stopped and it hasn't come back. I had unprotected a week after I got the shot and I've had cramping and some white discharge. Is this normal or is there a chance I am pregnant? (It's been a little over a month since I got the shot)
All totally normal. You might find you have some irregular bleeding or spotting until you've had your 2nd or 3rd shot, but you may be lucky & not get any, & just remain that way until you come off Depo.
White discharge is totally normal, as Depo thickens your cervical mucus, to prevent sperm passing through. As long as it's not cottage cheese consistency, as that could be thrush. Any foul odour - see your Doctor, as it could be an infection.
The cramping is just your body adjusting to the hormone imbalance. Depo is a big dose of hormone, & it's just like if getting a period or having a baby etc. You get hormonal symptoms.
