How long did you bleed after stopping the depo shot? So far I have been bleeding almost 2 and a half months now. First it was spottting... now its Im going thru 3 - 4 pads a day.



Im not on any other bc; Im waiting to get regular to get implanon. Its all good because I have no risk at getting pregnant because there is no male involved with that area and wont be for a LONG ass time.... BTW I only had one shot. Got it november 5th after having my son.

My friend has been bleeding for like 5 months after getting off Depo. She's been in and out of the hospital and had multiple blood transfusions.

Yeah it was kinda peer pressure. I think Im going to make a doctors appt for next week or in 2 weeks.... I cant take it anymore. I mean Im stocked on pads but its kinda crazy... that ish should be taken off the fucking market.

I got my depo the day before you...I am still bleeding too.
I had to go to the doctor and he said it is because my body is fighting the birth control.
It is supossed to stop your period but since my body is fighting it so hard, I am continuously bleeding.
It also gave me a very thick uterus, and am on Provera to thin it out and stop the bleeding, if the meds don't stop it I have to get a D & C. Maybe that is what is wrong with you, definitely go see your doctor!

Wow I was on the depo shot for 3 years and I had absolutely no issues with it what-so-ever!! I got my last shot in march /2009 and didn't have any spotting or anything until september /2009 when I got my first period in over 3 years and after that it was a normal period every month. I've heard a lot of people have had issues with the shot, but I LOVED it!!!!!!! Sorry your having problems and I think you should definitly go see a doctor if your bleeding that much!

Wow I'm sorry girl that sucks. I got my first and only shot on march and bled for 2 weeks straight immediately afterwards then stopped for a month then resumed my normal monthly 4 day period.



I'm not recommending it to you because I'm not a doctor but when I bled for the 2 weeks I read someone day they started taking birth control pills to stop the bleeding. I figured I had nothing to lose so I tried it and I did stop bleeding and my period is slowly getting back on track.



Goodluck to you!

I would use tampons but they hurt like a b*tch so I prefer pads! Maybe your doctor will prescribe Provera to you and that will help! It has made me stop bleeding so far! Good Luck!
