Bleeding on pill?: If you are bleeding while on depo-provera, it may be due to a thin lining of your uterus. Consider asking your gyn for a pelvic sonogram and check this. Maybe you need a little extra estrogen to make your lining thicken to stop the bleeding. Usually Estradiol 2 mg for only 10 days. It is easy and safe.
