I have received the shot over a month ago. I have read that sometimes people just stop getting there period but I have not seen anything regarding after the first shot. Is it normal that I am late for my next period? Or should i be concerned ?
Some people bleed, some don't. Some people take 2 or 3 shots until the bleeding stops. It's down to how your body copes with the huge dose of hormone that Depo gives it.
You do not get periods on Depo, once your body has adjusted to it. You sometimes get breakthrough bleeding, but it is not a period, because you are not fertile (you don't produce an egg, & therefore don't need a period to flush an egg out of your womb.
Hope that helps.
