First period after coming off depo
« on: September 02, 2018, 09:32:53 AM »
First time posting and i just wanted to hear other peoples experiences with their first period after depo. I had my last injection in december 2017 and i had my first period 31st august 2018 so it took me around 6 months to have my first period. It is incredibly painful, i dont remember the pain being this bad. It comes in waves and really hurts, i also keep getting a shooting pain in my pelvis/vagina. I havent had a period for 5 years so i dont know if ive just forgotten what its like or if its just worse because its been so long. Thanks

Hi, I had my last injection January 2018 after being on the depo for 4 years. My first period after that was 25th August 2018. I had horrible sharp pains in the vagina for a few days when my period started and the usual cramping and aching. It was actually really light but lasted for 13 days ending on the 6th of september. Now I think I'm about to have my second period, I started having pains this morning. It can take a long time for things to settle and be regular so what your experiencing sounds normal, although it's different for everyone.

If you dont mind sharing, have you noticed any weight gain or weight loss since you stopped the depo?

I've lost about 14kg since my last injection, thought it was strange because usually we gain it.
