Maybe . . .: Some women who regularly receive depo-provera shots stop having menses. So it's perfectly normal to not have your period even after just 1 shot of depo. Some birth control pills are designed to only give you a period every 3 months, some only once a year, while most common ones lead to menses every month. So whether you'll get a period depends upon pill you were given. Go ask your doc or pharmacis.
