I got my period Monday and had got the Depo shot yesterday but I am still bleeding, when will the bleeding stop
It's different for everyone, but it's common to get irregular bleeding until you've had 2 or 3 shots.
If you stop using Depo, that can trigger more bleeding, as your body tries to re-balance itself.
Just having 1 shot of Depo Provera, can mean that you do not regain your fertility for up to 18 months. Again, it's different for everyone, but that is what the Manufacturer advises.
However, some get pregnant straight away. Don't chance it. Just be aware that it can affect your fertility.
