Yes it can be normal but I would take a pregnancy test just in case because I was 2 days late getting my shot and my Gyn. said that it would stay in my blood stream for 3 weeks so as long as I got it before 3 weeks I was fine but she was wrong! I got pregnant 2 days after missing my shot! It all depends on your hormone levels. I actually had to get off of it because I had bleeding constantly and then I wouldnt have a period at all. It takes a really long time for your body to adjust to it. I have heard alot of people say they quit having periods all togeather from Depo! But I would talk with your Dr and take a at home test if you think you could be pregnant.

I would be careful about taking the depo, one of its side effects is early onset osteoporosis. It basically puts you into early menopause (which is why most women's periods stop)
