Off of Depo.. Still no periods

Postby candywannababy » Tue Aug 14, 2007 7:22 am

Please help. I'm 25 newly married and desperately trying for a baby. I took the depo shot only once and after the three month was over the periods still never returned. I am taking vitex and epo but still no normal periods. Please help

Hi! Finally a Depo Girl! I know what you mean, I took Depo for three years. My last shot was in January of 07. I did have a period in June, but it was light and only a few days. In July I had a full blown regular period for the first time in three years. My fiance and I are TTC also. I haven't had a period this month, but I'm not sure if it's b/c of being on the Depo for so long.

Here is the only information I could find about TTC after Depo. According to Depoprovera.com eighty five percent of women will conceive within a year of stopping the shot, no matter how many shots they've had. According to AmericanPregnancy.org ovulation will return within 3-6 months. It is possible that you may not have your cycle for 12-18 months.

I'll continue to reseach this and keep you posted. When did you take your last shot?

Hi!! I was on and off depo for a few years. It took me 11 months to get pregnant with my first two. Now... it's a totally different story. We have been trying for 2 years. My periods came back in Dec of 06 and I've had one every month but they are still irregular... I have put off going to the dr. simply because I know if I go then that would be admitting that there is something wrong. I had cryosurgery done in Jan of 06, I don't know if that has something to do with it or not. I have an appt. with my family dr. on Monday to check my thyroid and make sure everything is ok there.

Crazy, how one little shot can mess your body up so bad, huh?

If I knew then what I know now I would have never took it.

I took depo as well for about 3 years. After I got off I haven't had regular periods. I also had to have fertility treatments just to get pregnant with my last 2 ds's.

I took the Depo from April 1999 to July 2004. Worst thing i ever did. My cycles have never returned to normal.. I often wonder if i really have PCOS, or the docs are just using it to cover up how badly the Depo has affected my health. I would never recommend it to anyone, and have told a lot of girls that i work with to either come off it or never start it. I mean they use it to Chemically Castrate male sex offenders! How bad must it be for that to work?!!? I found a cool petition online.. http://www.petitiononline.com/madp/petition.html Its a good idea! I like the Guy who started this!
