    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    No one on an internet board can tell you why you have been bleeding for two weeks. You need to see a doctor.

    Before I got on birth control pills my periods would last about 10-13 days so I can feel your pain. Anyway, I was put on birth control pills for ovarian cysts and they have worked wonders for regulating my cycle. Perhaps you should ask your GYN about the pill?

    My niece has been off the Depo Provera birth control shot for almost a year now and our concern is that she has not restarted her menstrual cycle yet. We are concerned about what may be causing this to have such a delay

    Howdy, 2009BikerBabe!

    Thanks for posting about your niece. Nurse Jane had this answer about When a Period Returns after Depo Provera.
    "When testing for actual return of ovulation, the range can be 77-425 days with a mean time of 211 days— or seven months (Fotherby, 1986)."

    You may want to suggest your niece see her doctor and get some answers. The doctor may also have a treatment to "jump start" your niece's periods, but her doctor can determine that.

    If you post back with an update, I'd suggest starting a new thread. More people will see a brand new post, than a five month old post.

    Best wishes!
