So I was on depo for 6 months. stopped cause me and my boyfriend are trying to conceive. I haven't had a period since i started depo which was back in July of last year. Well a month ago my doctor put me on the pill and said it should help me get my period back. I stopped taking it after about 2 weeks cause I was seriously breaking out with it and I felt like crap. Well today which would have been the day i would have started the sugar pills, I started bleeding! Not heavy but enough to need a pad *tmi*. My question is, do you think its my real period?
I guess it could be. When I stopped taking the pill, I bled for three weeks. Wouldn't it make more sense just to not take any birth control, so it leaves your body naturally instead of trying to jump start your period?
I stated that to my doctor as well. But I was pretty desperate to get a period started. She said just taking a month of it should work. and if I didn't get anything to call her back. Like I said I stopped taking it cause it made me feel like crap and I was breaking out. So I figured if I stopped it wasn't really going to do any harm anyways.
