Common side effect: One of the most common side effects of Depo Provera is irregular prolonged menstrual bleeding or spotting. This typically occurs within the first year of treatment and tapers off after the first year. Talk to your doctor if these symptoms are not going away or if you would like to change your method of birth control.
