Shedding lining: If you are taking Depo-Provera provera, (medroxyprogesterone) the constant Progesterone makes the lining of your uterus shed. Unfortunately, it does it a little at a time, making you have irregular bleeding that may be pretty long. If you feel dizzy or tired or the bleeding is heavy, see your doctor. If it is spotting, give it a week and then see your doctor. Irregular bleeding can happen for up to 3-6 months. ...Read more

Within how long does birth control shot work if you don't get it within in 5 days of your period. I been told within 7 days and also a month. Any idea?
5 days is correct: It's not that it won't work if given at 7 days, it's "likely it won't" work. By giving in the 1st 5 days ovulation is almost guaranteed to be stopped, if given later you may ovulate anyway. So it's about how much chance to you want to take on getting pregnant? "One month" is just plain silly, wherever that idea came from. Hope this helps. ...Read more

When you stop taking the birth control shot how long till your cycles are normal. Feb i had a light period. No period in march. Spotting in april.
It may vary: If you stopped getting your injections of Dopo-Provera, 150 mg every 3 months, a return to your "normal cycles" may be quite variable, reportedly between 3 to 12 months usually (rarely longer) depending on how long remaining levels of the hormone continue to block your ovulation and on several other factors like your age, personal health issues, body weight, BMI, duration of use... ...Read more
