Depo Shot

I took one doses of the depo shot last year on this month... my question is how long does it take for it to be completely out of your system???

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that it can take up to 18 months for depo to be completely cleared.  If you had regular periods before going on depo, you will  know when it had cleared out of your system when you begin to have regular periods again.
Good luck!
