I am on the depo shot and have not had a real period in probably 4-5 years. I started taking melatonin and now I have some spotting. I did some research and melatonin is NOT to be used by women who are pregnant, trying to conceive, or breastfeeding. Some sources say that it can be used as a form of BC or that it can be used to increase fertility. WHAT?!
Hmmm, I haven’t heard the BC link, but it does affect our hormones. Considering there aren’t effectiveness studies, I wouldn’t use it for that purpose!
I would say that the increase in fertility would probably have to do with a jump in progesterone, which is helped by melatonin :)
