I haven’t made the switch so just *bump*-ing in case anyone else can help you.

I have a copper IUD though, if you have any questions about it in general.

I switched from depo to a copper IUD and I didn’t get my period for… *gasp* 9 months. I was freaking out. I probably did a pregnancy test a week for 6 months straight. I felt weird. Bloated. My boobs hurt. I had so many signs that pointed to me being pregnant but every test came up negative. I went through a very stressful time towards the end of that 9 months (seperation from my then husband) and I thought maybe that had something to do with it but finally my period came. It lasted about 6 days (now it only lasts 3 or 4) of heavy heavy heavy flow and then I have had it like clockwork every month since. 

I was on depo for WAY too long though. About 10 years. I switched because my hormones were so out of control. Now that I am having my periods again on a monthly basis and I have the PMS and cramps to go along with it I really wish I could go back on depo but I know that is not a good thing for my body so I will just make due. Just yesterday I actually made a comment to my SO that I was “removing my ovaries!” LOL  Obviously I was kidding 🙂
