Two months of having a consistent period doesn't seem normal. I know depoprovera causes irregular bleeding. Can i stop this? I have had enough!

Maybe

Bleeding
When you take depo provers, even though the medicine is supposed to work for only 3 months, it can affect your periods for up to 9-12 months after each shot. And often it can cause constant or very irregular bleeding. So you would need to consult a specialist to make sure nothing else is causing the bleeding and to try to help control things until the effects of depo are gone!

Does DepoProvera stop ur period?

Yes, eventually

Bleeding
The longer you are on DepoProvera the more likely you will have no bleeding. Irregular and persistent bleeding is quite common in the first 3 to 6 months.

Can depoprovera birth control shot cause a false period?

Might allow bleed

Birth_control
Women using depoprovera typically bleed very little or not at all. A small number will have irregular spotting that is unpredictable and typical of progesterone-only contraception. Occasionally, women on depoprovera can have a bleeding episode that resembles a period.

Depoprovera shot ran out middle of may, no period for June, July 18th started bleeding, now bleeding 22 days straight.. Is this normal?

Possibly

Bleeding
Depo can cause a range of bleeding patterns from no bleeding to daily bleeding. For some it can effect bleeding for more than a year. your irregular bleeding is likely due to Depo. However a visit to your doctor might help exclude less likely causes and provide help with the prolonged bleeding

is it normal that after 6 months of having my last depoprovera (3 that protects me for getting pregnant) that i havent got my period???

Not unusual

Menses
It is not unusual to still not have your period 6 months after your last DepoProvera shot as it is only 3 months after the medication has done its work. Be patient as the majority of women resume normal menses within 12 months.

Could someone describe what depoprovera shot side effects?

Side Effects

Weight_gain
Depo Provera actually has a lower failure rate for pregnancy than tubal ligations. But, there are a myriad of side effects. Weight gain is common as is irregular bleeding. There are some women in whom ovulation will be suppressed for prolonged periods of time. In addition, long term use can lead to bone loss and loss of sex drive.

Perhaps

Ask the gynecologist who prescribed the depo shots whether your bleeding is normal spotting or if you need further evaluation prior to starting BC pills.
