Errr...: it's normal "up to a point." heavy bleeding for LIMITED times soon after cryo is likely normal, prolonged heavy bleeding or bleeding months after a cryo is likely NOT normal. Depo-Provera does not cause heavy bleeding tho many women describe it as heavy because it's frequent. Keep a close watch on the bleeding and talk with your doctor again if worried. Good wishes.
