A 24-year-old female asked:

Im bleeding on Depo-Provera why and when will it stop

Common side efect: This is a very common side-effect. Usually stops within 3 months, but I have known patients who have bled a lot longer even after stopping the depot. Even though pregnancy is rare whilst on depot, this should be ruled out.
