Yes, it is true that depot shots can cause amenorrhea or absence of periods. This can happen after the first depot shot cycle or after a few cycles or even after 2-3 years. Women continue to get irregular bleeds and spotting meanwhile. Only 50-70 percent of women are free of periods after about 2 years of use. Hence there are a considerable few who will get periods after this also. It is very important to discuss this with your daughter's gynecologist and see what best can be done for her. Take care!
Thanks for the response!
Is there a better option to cease her cycle? She doesn't have a gyn yet as there is no way she'd endure an exam with her delays. We started the shot as soon as possible after her first breakthrough in the hopes that she'd cease before she got regular.
if I get the shot while im on my period will it stop or continue till the last day of my period because I got my yesturday while on my period I woke up in the morning checked my self no period or spotting then like around 2 in the afternoon I got it again .
