I had 1 period after being off the Depo. I'm late for a 2nd. Tests say I'm not pregnant. Can I be?

After getting the Depo shot, it takes longer for your body to return to normal and start having regular ovulatory cycles. What’s regular for you can be different than what was regular for you before you started having the Depo injections. You mentioned that you’ve had one period. It was kind of late if you compare it to what your cycles were before but your pregnancy tests are negative. It’s good that you took a test. That’s the number one reason why a woman wouldn’t have a period. But the amount of time it takes a woman to return to normal after getting Depo injections largely depends on body mass index. A woman who has a higher body mass index is likely to take longer to return back to normal cycles than a woman with a lower body mass index. It would be best to talk to your doctor about your concerns and they can take your health history, the medications you’re on, the different birth control options you’ve been using as well as your body mass index into account and help you decide if the things that you’re noticing about your cycles are normal or if it warrants further investigation or even maybe a change in treatment. Good luck with everything and if you have any other questions for me, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at and recommend us to your friends and family, too.
