Experience

I stopped using this after 2 shots as I was constantly bleeding. After a further 3 months we’re trying to conceive. I’m nearly a year out from the last shot and I still don’t have my periods back, I’ve read it can take up to 2 years, I’m distraught as I was never told this.

Experience after taking

Nearly a year from my last use I still don’t have my cycle back, I was never told this when I chose this contraception.
