You could: But depending on how long you've been on it you may need estrogen. The Depo-Provera causes the lining if the uterus to get thin resulting, at times, in bleeding. Irregular bleeding is why estrogen is in an oral contraceptive pill. Consider Estradiol .5-1 mg per day, likely a better solution with less drawbacks.
