Hi I to had the depo injection only had 3 shots of it and I still have no periods after 6 months, I've heard some awful stories and wish this was explained to me by my doctor before I had the shots as I wouldn't have ! I don't know if you'd be ovulating without having periods maybe you should speak to your doc, most of the stories I've heard the periods return first but without ovulation, I have been reading up on the internet and there are some herbel remidies you can take to help ovulation don't know if they work yet as I've only just started trying them but if you want to have a go,
Raspberry leaves (you can get these in herbel tea)
Grapefruit juice
Yam Root (from the health food store)
and Soya products
I'm not trying for a baby just yet but want my body back to normal, evil stuff that depo it should defo be explained better before it's given out !
Good luck to you hope everything works out for you x

This is hust awful, i didnt know that having depo injections could do this! The consultants really should explain this before we agree to having them!!!

my periods stopped for 2 years after I had the last depot injection. I ended up on clomiphene and clomid to try and menstruate and ovulate again - but fell pg after only 3 months of that.
