Hello I'm just curious as to how severely your ovaries can become negatively effected by the depo shot. I got off of it about a year and a half ago. finally got my period back two months ago. both periods normal 28 days apart. I'm on my third month and my period is eight days late. I've taken 4 pregnancy tests. All showed up negative. Is it normal to experience something like this?
Depo shots can suppress normal hormones can hence the delayed menses. However as you have had two normal menses, and hence the delay can be due to stress, change in environment, excessive exercise etc. Once a pregnancy is ruled out, periods can be induced with medications.
Hope this helps.
