Hi,

Depo Provera is a long acting contraceptive and is well known to cause irregular or absent periods. So your absence of period can be due to the Depo shot. Period irregularity due to low thyroid problem is well treated by thyroid preparation to compensate the deficiency. You have to take the medicine regularly for good effect. But if you want contraception, you can continue with depo injection.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
