depo shot once, have not had a period for 4 months?

I took the depo shot just once. I did not go back for my second shot. I had starting spotting and it only lasted for a second. After that i have not had a period for 4 months. Is it normal?

Yes, it is possible, especially after Depo. It can take a while for the hormones to leave your body and your cycle to restart.

If you have any reason to think you can be pregnant, take a pregnancy test and repeat it a week later to confirm the results.
