Punk_mum...very frustrating. Ive only had one shot july of 13 and i was due to go back in Oct same year and didn't go back. Although i spotted for 3 whole weeks after injection and the beginning ofAugust i was completely done. I just know of ppl getting one injection then afterwards is having a cycle. I honestly figured the bigger a person wasthe longer itd take for it to leave their system. All i can do is b patient :/

I agree punk_mum, I was just gonna say lets get this thread going as most depo threads just seem to disappear or go really quite.

I only had one shot in November 2012, no spotting at all and I think after the three months it made me feel pregnant which is apparently the side affects of coming off it, that's about it I don't remember much problems, they do say if you plan to try for baby you should come off the shot a year in advance.

I honestly didn't think it would take long but at the same time when I got the shot my son was 10 months, it was my first ever birth control and didn't want another baby as I was stressed at the time. Once I got home and told OH and we read online about all the horror stories I just regretted it and OH was so upset as he was/still is adamant on another baby.

I've now learnt a lesson and probably won't go back on birth control again lol

Reese - yes there is, she actually responded on a thread I made a while back on depo saying she also didn't get a period after depo and then after a while she announced she was pregnant, so it can happen

After this I'm never going on birth control again! How are you ladies today? I've been doing DIY, keeping busy!
I've started Agnus Castus today, I'm hoping it will help me get a proper period. Tired of spotting...
I've also started vitamin supplements. Getting ready!

Im with you ladies!

Had 2 depo shots in 2012, and my last ever shot 'ran out' July of 2012.
Myself and my OH were TTC from July 2012 until October 2013, with no luck.

We stopped for a short period of time, and are now back on the road.


My periods returned after 3 months of my depo 'running out' and they have been regular-ish for only around 6 months.

I wish all of you all the luck in the world and a lot of babydust your way!!!


Hopefully we all see a gorgeous BFP soon enough!!

Hi taylorttc!
Welcome aboard the depo train, destination bfp!
Well, day three of agnus castus, my spotting finally stopped! Haven't seen any spotting for two days! Hoping this means I will get back to normal soon!
How is everyone? It's pouring rain here today. Not much fun. Hope everyone else is doing well!

I'm so delighted to have an active and current Depo thread! I was on Depo for 1.5 years, got my last shot August 2012 (so it technically ran out in Nov. 12) I finally got my cycle back May 2013 6 months later! I concur with the previous posts, getting off of Depo was the devil. I suffered several months of pregnancy like symptoms, but they're gone now. This month I started testing OPK and got a positive, so I think things are getting back on track. No BFP success, but a little light at the end tunnel that AF will return and your bodies can hopefully get closer back to normal.

I'm happy to help or chat for anyone that needs it.

Hey ladies! I hope you all don't mind if I join this thread... Its nice to hear from people who are in the same situation as me! I was a long time depo user (7 years) and loved it while I was on it, never had any spotting or worried about anything! My DH and I were married last year in October after being together for 8 years and so I got my last shot in January 2013 after we decided we were ready to try. So my shot ran out April of 2013 and the roller coaster began. Much like all of you I could have sworn I was pregnant with all the symptoms of nausea, sore boobs, back aches, everything except actually being pregnant! I had cramps pretty much every month and nothing ever came. At the beginning of January I finally had some spotting... very light and for about a week. My hopeful thinking thought it was implantation bleeding but after a negative test I resorted to just being happy that something was happening after months and months of nothing. Got some bleeding again today so I have a feeling Im in for some more bumps in my roller coaster of searching for a BFP! Glad to see this active board and that I'm not the only one who is dealing with the aftermath of depo.

Hi ladies!
Well, I got excited because I got a near positive opk this morning with smu, then tried an hour later and it was completely negative! My pee was pretty concentrated the first time and super diluted the 2nd, ah well. Never mind!
I quit taking my agnus castus as it wreaked havoc with my tummy.
I'm thinking about adopting a new cat though! :-) I love my furry friends, even my oh is very hairy, haha!
Well enough of my random babble! Hope you're all well! X

Hey Punk_Mum... I haven't gotten a positive on an OPK kit either. I know they suggest not drinking any liquid 2 hours before the test so maybe you will have a positive tomorrow morning! I was thinking about ordering some agnus castus but now im pretty worried, dont need a stomach ache to go along with all the other random symptoms I'm still having. A new cat sounds like a good distraction... I've been trying to convince DH to let me get a puppy but I don't quite have him on board (YET)! Well baby dust to all of you! Hope you have a good day!
