i used injectable contraceptive once only on september 2010...i have spotting for longer periods continuously in a month...i just want to ask when will my regular period return?

Hi Dianern25, You should

Hi Dianern25,

You should consult your doctor. An injection contraceptive such as Depro should not be effecting your menstrual cycle after only one injection nor should you still be having problems almost six months after the shot. The shot should have lasted for three months your hormones and cycle should be back to normal by now.

Best of Luck,
