Nuristerate : Do you get ur period when you start?

On the 12 January 2004 i took my first injection of Nuristerate and stopped taking the Pill. The doctor informed me that being on the hormone injection will cause my period to stop completely. Will my period stop from this month? I was suppsosed to get my period on the 26th and haven't yet. Also, after how long from the inital injection must the injection need to take effect to protect one from pregnancy?

It varies form person to person. Some women continue having periods, though the majority will stop. You are safe from Day 1 after having the injection.
