Irregular period on the pill

Sad Well where to begin, Last year i went on Depo and that didn't work out too good for me I bleed almost every month for a year, i wounld have my period for 3 weeks out of a month. So i finally decided to get off it in july thinking that everything would return to normal if I got back on the pill. My period is still so unpredictable, It's the same as it was while I was on Depo. Has anyone experienced this if so how did u deal with it?

Unfortunately, Depo can reaaally make your cycle wacky for even more than a year after going off of it. Just continue to take your pills, and know that in time it will only get better! I'm sorry you had to deal with that. I can't imagine how much it would suck.
