i'm bleeding on the depo-provera shot will it ever stop?

Eventually: It may last up to 1.5 years after your last shot. A real down side of that medicine. So you will likely need to wait and see what happens. But you may need other treatment in the meantime if the bleeding is a problem.

Evaluation: It is uncommon but certainly possible for endometriosis to invade deeply into the bladder or rectum. A cystoscopy of the bladder and a colonoscopy would be very useful to help figure that out.

What are the signs of stomach bleeding?

Dr. Timothy Ashley
Internal Medicine and Pediatrics 15 years experience
Dark or red stool: Signs of stomach bleeding vary depending on how much bleeding there is and how fast. Stool may be loose and dark black, often called "tar-like", or may be more red, up to bright red for very brisk bleeding. Some people may also vomit red blood or brown, partly digested blood ("coffee grounds" vomit). Suspected blood in stool or vomit should always be promptly evaluated as it can be very dangerous.
