It takes awhile to get back to normal, but be prepared and use protection as your fertility could return quickly. Most women don't get a period for another 6-9 months after stopping depo. You can be fertile any time before that though it isn't likely. My obgyn told me to stop 18 months before I wanted to get pregnant because it can take a long time. Other side effects vary, I had headaches and mild cramping, when my periods began they were very light and a lot of brownish color blood. I also felt achy when I happened to workout really hard and when I lost weight, I guess depo is stored in fat cells, so losing weight released what depo i had stored up. On the upside I stopped having nightmares and feeling too warm at night. Good luck!
it take a good 3 months i was on it for almost 3 years it took me 7 months to get pregnant so .
Hi I have been on depo for over two years. I have only just felt side effects as, little cramps in my stomach, sore back,legs, going to the toilet more often, feeling tired during the day & feeling hungry. I have had two pregnancy tests, one from shop and a blood test both come up negative.
Can you have cramps in your stomach before you have the deposit again
