Have tried depo shot and seasonique. Both cause irregular, random bleeding. Enough needed to wear pad. Next step to try?

Different method: There are several other options. Depo and seasonique frequently cause irregular bleeding. The more traditional types of pills with monthly periods are less likely to cause irregular bleeding if taken right as with rings or patches. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD causes some irregular bleeding at first but then makes periods shorter and lighter and sometimes to the point that you don't bleed at all.Hope this helps ...Read more

Today is my last day on being the Depo-Provera shot for three months, how long will it take until it wears off? I want to get pregnant soon

3 months to 2 years: as there is variability depending on each individual patient. I would not recommend being pregnant at 16. At least finish your high school education or consider a vocational/technical school to give your future child a life with financial stability to be able to adequately provide for his or her needs. The average cost to raise a child from birth to age 18 is $241,080. ...Read more
