I was on the depo shot for 3 years and I never had a period. I did have light to moderate clear discharge I figured it was pretty normal. I didn't think much it. But I also got pregnant on the depo and ended up miscarrying my baby at 10 weeks. I was told I miscarried because the depo was fighting the fetus and it eventually terminated my pregnancy. Their not suppose to be giving anybody the depo shot anymore because of that very reason. To many women ended up pregnant on the depo shot having complications with pregnancies and/or miscarrying their babies . So just keep that in mind. Make sure you do a pregnancy test before you ever see your doctor for the depo shot. You might want to have your doctor give you the pill instead sounds like they haven't heard about the update on that Depo shot. Good luck and your in my prayers.
