    Default What should I do ? - Depo shot

    Hi there,

    Needing some advice didn't get my last Depo shot which was due 2 1/2 weeks ago, didn't have AF the whole time on Depo and since stopping it is yet to return, so a total of nearly 7 months without AF so far !

    Since stopping the Depo I have been having horrible symptoms, sore breasts, cramps non stop, headaches, back ache, dizziness

    If any one else has gone through this I would love some advice, not sure whether to see the doctor or just wait a few more weeks incase it is just withdrawals from not getting the shot

    Thank you in advance

    I have been on the depo for 9 years. I stopped the depo twice to fall pregnant. It takes a very long time for your body to get back to normal. It took me 3 months to have a normal period. This is after taking Vitex (a hormone regulator). I recommend Vitex. It is amazing! Available at chemists

    I had 4 Depo shots (so a years worth). It took 11 months for my period to return yet I was getting "pms" symptoms like cramping, sore breasts, exhaustion, night sweats for a week every month.
    Also, the first 3 months after my missed shot, I got vertigo so bad I was on medication for it. It was constant and made me throw up a few times.

    I went to the doctor and apart from prescribing me the vertigo medication, I was basically just told to wait it out.
