After the last shot, it takes between six and eight months for cycles to become regulated again. If it's been longer than 8 months, then you need to see your doctor for an evaluation. A hormone imbalance could be the case, or the weight gain. Your doctor would check your levels via blood test to see where they are at, and if an imbalance is occurring may give you hormones to correct it.
