In brief: Depo and bleeding

Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is known for irregular and unpredictable bleeding.
Some patients have no periods at all after they're on Depo-Provera for longer time periods. If you want controlled predictable periods, you should consider another form of birth control.
