Hi 6464431

Thanks for your question and welcome! Depo is known to take some time to leave the body so that, mixed with a new method of birth control, mixed with missing a lot of pills and add in your period? I think your monthly cycle may be confused and needs another month to adjust itself back to normal.

However, I would still suggest a visit to your doctor, just to make sure. Why are you scared to go? Are you afraid something awful is wrong? Please don't think this way although I know it's perfectly natural to do so. If there really is something wrong, attending to it straight away is the best gift you can give to yourself. It's very likely though that this problem is simply connected to your changes in birth control and missed pills.

Will you update us after you see someone?
