      Hi Susan The Depo can stop your periods because your progesterone is being kept artificially high. Your oestrogen, which usually triggers a period, is being suppressed so your periods stop. However, once the injection wears off your progesterone will fall to its own natural level which may then allow the oestrogen to start a period. If you are naturally not quite in the menopause (average age is 45-55) your hormones will behave as in the peri-menopause and this could include occasional periods, breast tenderness etc. It is quite a complex situation! However, if you are worried at all then do see your doctor, they can maybe check your hormones now to see what is going on.

      Hi Debbie Periods can come back like this and is often just a blip with your hormones. However, if your period doesn't stop or continues to make you feel worse it is important to see your doctor. You can get really low in iron very quickly with these bleeds so you may need your iron level checked too.

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
