So, I was on the depo for about 2 and half years. My last shot was back in May 2011 and I started having problems with it. I called my doctor to see if I could switch to the pill before my next shot appointment. I understand that it can take up to a year for the shot to leave your system, but with taking the pill, I started getting my periods back. My husband and I decided to start trying for a baby after my second batch of pills. In October, I got my normal period. In November, it came two days late and lasted all week. There was nothing different about it except for it arriving two days late. I didn't get one for the month of December. I thought that it might come late like it did in November, but it's been almost a week and still nothing. I took a test this week, but it said negative. I'm not trying to stress out about it, but I would just like to know so that I can start taking the necessary precautions. If anyone has any answers or suggestions for me, it would be greatly appreciated View Thread
