Be patient: For the first couple months after starting Depo Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) you may continue to have a light period, even breaking through at two weeks. After time the lining of the uterus thins and bleeds less and less, resulting in very light or no periods.

See answer:: Excessive vaginal bleeding is common on Depo-Provera. This tends to subside with continued use. Passing tissue would not be an effect of the medication, but if you're bleeding heavily you may have larger blood clots looking like tissue. Estrogen pills or transdermal patch may help stop excessive bleeding. Consult your Dr. SEE:http://abt.cm/1Is7lzm

Yes : Especially when diabetes isn't in good control menstrual periods can be irregular. If periods remain irregular when diabetes is in good control another cause of irregular periods should be sought.

Not likely : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and reliable. If your are two weeks late for your period then it should be correct. You can wait a few days and repeat it. If still negative then see your doc to discuss irregular periods and ovulation testing to help you get pregnant.
