I got one depo shot back in October.  Instantly regretted it because of the weight gain (which I am still working on!).  My period disappeared for seven months.  And now that it's back, I'm getting one every two weeks at least.  Is this normal after depo?  Anyone know how long it will take my system to get back to normal?  Thanks.

Yea, it is normal, although kind of surprising after just one shot! It can take up to a year.

I only had depo once and it messed up my periods for around 6 months. I'm not really sure what the norm is, but mine were straightened out within a year.

Thanks everyone.  Annoying, but good to know that it's within normal. :)
