A member asked:

Can my constant bleeding be more than a contraception issue. i had my last baby on 11-17-2011. it is now 3-31-2012 and i'm still bleeding. first, i was on the pill then i switched to the depo-provera shot. my second shot is scheduled between 4-12 to 4-26.

I : I am sorry that you are going through that. That is prolonged bleeding after delivery. The best advise would be to see the doctor who delivered your baby, who has a relationship with you and will want to know about this. They can determine if your bleeding is from hormone fluctuations after pregnancy and with the Depo-Provera or if you need further evaluation.
