... period after 3months then had another normal period but two weeks after that I had another bleed but havent had a period now for over a month. I normally know when my ovulation is because my boob's hurt two weeks after my period. I've also noticed sore nipples, bloating and tiredness. Not sure what's going on
That's just what happens to many women when they take Depo Provera. It can last for many months, sometimes taking up to 18 months to get your fertility back.
If you're not using other hormonal birth control, you can use a natural product called Agnus Castus (Vitex in the USA) to naturally balance your hormones. That's what worked for me, after a few failed attempts to come off Depo left me with heavy bleeding for up to 2 years. You can't use that product if you are on hormonal birth control, though, as it could work against it & you could become pregnant.
