I was on the Depo-Provera for 3 years then switched to the pills how long will it take for my body to get back to normal?
It varies . Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is a medication that works for long periods of time because it has the capacity to store itself in our bodies. When you stop using it, your periods may return fairly quickly(3months) but it's not unusual for it tot take up to 18 months for things to go back to normal.
I started the Depo-Provera shot last year november and stoped this year november how long will it take for my body to get back to my normal cycle?
Varies. Some women resume normal menses within a month or so, but I have seen some take up to a year to resume normal periods. If you stopped it to become pregnant, use a condom until you have had at least 1 or 2 normal periods as the lining of your uterus may be too thin to sustain a pregnancy after prolonged Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone).
