When I got the first depo shot, it was in October of 2008. After that, I went off it for about 2 months because I couldn't get in to see my health care provider. Then in March of 2009, I got the first shot again, then proceeded to get back off it in June of 2009 because I couldn't handle the side effects. Since then, I have not had my period for three, almost four months. Every pregnancy test I have taken has come back negative, even though I'm experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms. Has anyone else had that problem, and how long did it take for your periods to come back? I never thought I'd say this, but I miss my periods!
