i been using contraceptives since i was about thirteen yrs(now 25).I was on nurlstrate and last year i skipped some few days b4 going to the clinic and the nurse injected me with a depo provera saying that it is better to use it than nulstrate.i only used it once,and never went back to the clinic again.It's been about 5 months now & i havent seen my periods yet.I would like to start a family of my own as soon as possible as i'm trying to get pregnant.Is there some pills i could use to see my periods again and fall pregnant,how much do they cost,can you buy them over the counter from any pharmacy?Desperate Dandalion!
The absent periods are most likely from the Depo provera. You will have to wait till this wears out of your system. This may take up to a year.
