2 weeks after sex I started to bleed again I am worried. Can someone tell me what's wrong please. My next shot due on the 23rd of this month. Should I take it back or not?
It's common to get irregular bleeding on Depo Provera, until you've had 2 or 3 shots. Most women find that the bleeding gradually stops after that.
It's also common to get a little spotting after sex, when on Depo Provera. It's just a case of deciding if it's something you want to persevere with. All hormonal contraceptives carry side effects.
Getting your shot at the earliest available point, can help stop the bleeding. You're usually given a 2 week window, so get it at the start of that window.
