I was on the depo shot for 9 months before I realized it started making my period very irregular. At first I was on my period for a few weeks at a time, and then it became a few months at a time. I've been off the depo for a good while now, but my period has not even started to go back to normal. I went to the doctor and they were very unhelpful. They gave me a prescription to try to stop my period for when it goes on to long, and it works until I'm finished taking it and then it starts right back up again. I don't understand it and I can't find a good explanation for why this is happening and what I can do to make it stop. Does anybody know anything about it or have any advice?
I was prescribed Depo Provera for severe cramps. I had continual light spotting for months, but I stuck with it, because it was better than the severe cramps I had without it. Eventually, I had no period at all, which was just fine with me. After I went off the shot, it took 12 full months to get my period again. The only advice I have is to exercise: my period came back irregularly, but during the months I was running, it was regular. Adrenaline, estrogen, and other hormones are connected through your endocrine system. Regulating your exercise, stress, and sleep will help your body get back to normal faster.
