In brief: You could

But depending on how long you've been on it you may need estrogen.
The depo causes the lining if the uterus to get thin resulting, at times, in bleeding. Irregular bleeding is why estrogen is in an oral contraceptive pill. Consider Estradiol .5-1 mg per day, likely a better solution with less drawbacks.
