In brief: Common transition

Breakthrough bleeding is common upon initiating depo-provera.
It will usually get better and for many women they'll enjoy lighter periods or none at all in the future. Patience will be rewarded. Also make sure you're not gaining significant weight. Also should have good dairy or calcium intake for your bones.
