I am a 25 year old female. I stopped taking my birth control after my last depo provera shot in September. Had a period in early Feb, then didnt have on for a while, took a preg test on march 26 that was negative, started period next day. period lasted 3 WEEKS, havent had on since then. what should i do?

User avatar I can't be positive but I would suggest this may be just fluctuation due to the change in hormonal levels after the Depo was stopped. I would watch from here and see if the periods return to normal as I suspect they will. If other symptoms are unusual, see your doctor for an evaluation.
