I have been on depo for 3 1/2 yrs. I got off Aug 2011, I had a regular 7 day period in June 2012. They are 30 days apart. I had unprotected sex in Sept 2012 came Oct 6 I was due for a period no show. I am now 3 wks late with a neg pregnancy test. What is going on with my body?

Hi Anonymous,

When you come off long term birth control it can take a few months for your period to become regular again. When did you last take a pregnancy test? If it was negative recently then your body may still be adjusting to coming off the depo.

Good Luck,
