I thought maybe it was because I got the shot before my menstrual. This is my 1st depot shot. The 2nd week of December, it went off and came back on 12/24/16 and have been on ever since 1/15/16. I was suppose to go get another by 12/14/16 but said no way in hell. I have high blood pressure problem and a kidney disease but I was told depo would help with my iron even though my tubes are tied. I went and asked for the birth control pills but was told no due to my health conditions. I went and bought the flaxseeds but didn't use it because I was told it makes you bleed heavy. The bleeding I'm experiencing is clotting everyday thick and heavy using a lot of pads. All I have been drinking is water. Can anyone help?? What works??
