I have spotted before but I have never bled. Is this normal? I have been bleeding for 3 days and I got my 4th shot 2 days ago. The blood went from brownish to red.
I have never used Depo, because I can't handle the hormones. I have always suggested the Paraguard Copper IUD. I do know with any type of birth control there is a chance of breakthrough bleeding. Especially if you just got the shot.
If there is a chance of pregnancy, I would wait a few days and see what happens. It's not guaranteed that you won't bleed on Depo, it's usually just what happens. If you don't stop in a few days, I would recommend you calling your doctor.
Hope this helps.
