I have used the depo shot for years, because I had to stop the bleeding from my periods. I would pass out from the blood loss. I am so much happier on depo. But it took about
six months to a year to reach a theraputic level. I do not use mine for bc right now, so I only use it when I need to stop bleeding and that is usually every 4-6 months. I had one incident for two months that I had weird bleeding during the 14 years I have been on it. The weird thing this depo shot is suppost to be bad for your bones, but I am actually gaining ground on my dexa scan. Seems my bone problems were more from damage to that area of the intestine.
