Birth control question. Please help. I get pills from back in india. Can I see doctor in us for refill?

I've been bleeding for a month now that I stoped my birth control. I was on the birth control shot and I didn't get my last dose now I've been bleeding for a month strait. Should I see a doctor?

I've been bleeding for a month now that I stoped my birth control. I was on the birth control shot and I didn't get my last dose now I've been bleeding for a month strait. Should I see a doctor?

Depo: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) works by affecting your hormone levels which prevents ovulation and thus prevents pregnancy. Once you stop getting the Depo-Provera shot regularly, it can take up to 3-4 months for your hormone levels and cycle to once again become regular. Though some women will start to ovulate regularly immediately after stopping depo, many women will not. Because of this, irregular bleeding after stopping Depo-Provera is a fairly common problem. You should give your doctor a call if this doesn't resolve after 3 months or if you think your bleeding is heavy or excessive. There are medications your doctor can give you to stop your bleeding. Good luck! ...Read more
