Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, Thanks for your reply. Basically as you are aware that it may take up to a year after your last injection for your normal cycle to return. Since your period has returned and you are having a normal period though shorter compared with the past, still this is within the range of normal (2 to 7 days). Hence this does not signify any condition or disease. Take care.

If am having periods every month am I ovulation properly
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, Yes a regular period in most cases indicates this and ovulation often happens around day 14 of a menstrual cycle, although the exact timing might vary among women or even from month to month. Hence regularly have sex two or three times a week, and you're almost certain to hit a fertile period at some point. Also daily intercourse during the days leading up to ovulation might increase the chances of getting pregnant. Take care.
