2014 or 2015?: If you haven't had DepoProvera in over a year and have been having normal periods this is definitely not normal. However, if you just started Depo this March, irregular and prolonged bleeding is common at first. Over time it usually goes away and you don't have periods at all but you do frequently have irregular bleeding at first when stopping it before periods again become regular.Hope this helps
