Long periods
T_thomp323 posted:
I was on the depo shot inconsistently for a year. It has been a year since my last shot. I began having a period in nov 2012, my periods ever since have been irregular. They last for 3 weeks up to a month. My current period started 17 feb and has been persistent ever since. My doctor prescribed me "reclipsen" i did not want to take it because my husband and i want to conceive. I thought it would be better for my body if i let it regulate its period on its own without the extra hormones. However, I'm still dealing with irregular periods. Should i take it? Will i be able to conceive after?
