How long did it take for you to get your period back after being on Depo Shot?

My Depo shot ended the beginning of May 2010 and I still haven’t gotten my period back yet. During the 9 months that I was on it I never once had my period. Me and my husband are trying to conceive and so I’ve been taking a pregnancy test every so often to check because normally you lose your period when pregnant, but I have no period to lose!! Any thoughts on this??

Yes, it can take over a year for your body to get back to normal, though if you have concerns you should go see a doctor. I’m sure they’ll tell you the same thing, but they could induce your period to see if that starts things going again with (ironically) a pill called provera. It’s a birth control pill, but if you take if for 7-10 days it doesn’t prevent pregnancy and causes a withdrawal bleed (a period).
