My last Depo shot was in November 2016. I was supposed to get the next one in February 2017, but since me and my husband are planning to get pregnant, I stopped the prick.
I read that after stopping Depo, women usually get their period back in 6 to 12 months.
I actually knew about this, but we’re just afraid that if we stopped the prick earlier, I might get pregnant sooner that expected. 😛
Depo Withdrawal Symptoms
- After stopping the Depo, I experienced breast tenderness and pain. Well, I like the idea of having huge breasts, but the pain is too much that I need to hold them together when I run or jog. OUCH!
- I took the pregnancy test twice in April thinking I might be pregnant since the symptoms were similar to being pregnant.
- I also have abdominal cramps once in a while.
- Mood swings are still present. Of course!
- I’m always tired. I’m too lazy to even open my laptop and write. I just want to lay down in bed during my day off.
- My appetite seems to go back to normal. I don’t crave a lot anymore. (That’s a good thing!)
I got my period back last May 14, 2017 for five days (my normal menstrual cycle). Some women usually experienced irregular cycle after stopping the Depo shot, so I’m not even sure if I will have my period this June. *fingerscrossed*
I downloaded the Flo app to monitor my menstruation and ovulation days, just in case.
I hope it works! 😛
