I got the depo injection on the 19th September on the 5th day of my period and since  then I've been feeling very tired and have ended up going to bed early with the earliest time 7:30pm, and I was due to start my next period between the 17th and 22nd October but haven't had anything yet but I heard the depo can stop your periods  together, will this effect my firtility and any chance of having children in the future, I'm only 17.

It isn't uncommon not to have a period. And I ever wanted to do on it was sleep. As far as fertility goes mu ob told me twice the length of time I was on it is how long it could possibly take to het pregnant again. Go do some research on it for yourself so you can feel more comfortable being on it

Do not take depo any more it will affect your chances of pregnancy late on.
