Pregnancy test?: First, if a pregnancy test has not been done, then this needs to happen. Next, I am not sure what your doctor is treating with regard to the pelvis with this antibiotic.

Some: Some forms of birth control such as the Depo-Provera shot can be associated with prolonged bleeding in the first few months that you are on it, but any prolonged bleeding that starts or continues after you have been on birth control for more than 6 months should be evaluated by a doctor. You could just have a hormone imbalance causing your bleeding, but you could also have something more serious such as endometrial cancer. The best and safest thing you can do is give your doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

I have the arm implant and am breastfeeding doctor told me I wast gonna get my period n I have been bleeding 4 almost a week now give birth3 month ago?

Normal: You do have a delay in return to menses when breast feeding exclusively. That means up until you supplement with bottles or even use pacifiers. The implant does not often stop periods. It does often make them irregularly irregular. That means without any pattern. You don't bleed more than you would without the implant but you never know when you are going to bleed. It sounds normal. ...Read more

I'm not in any pain but I have been bleeding for now going on 4 weeks into the fifth. ......this is the second time. ..the first time was a fluke..

Get checked: Hi Kevin911 You don't include your age, but continual menstrual bleeding outside of periods should always be investigated because it either suggests hormonal imbalance (including pregnancy), or something else (perhaps even cancer) causing irritation of the uterus. So I'd suggest you schedule with a gyn or FP right away!! ...Read more

Maybe normal: Most likely this bleeding is due to being on depoprovera. Implanon can do the same thing. The safest thing is to make sure you are not pregnant. A home pregnancy test can tell you this. Talk to the caregiver who is giving you the shots. They should be able to help. ...Read more
