I have been on depo for 9 years. I have never really bleed while on it except I will spot like a week before my shot is due and when I pee here and there but not even enough for panty liners. And that blood was generally brown in color. Id say the past year I ha e been spotting more often still n9t every month. But now with my last shot a month and half ago I have been bleeding bright red blood for almost 2 weeks and clot some when I pee only. I know that spotting and constent bleeding is normal but I have not had these symptoms for most the years I been on depo

I am still on depo. And my cycles have been pretty much exactly the same. Only with in the past year has it changed most recently with my last shot. I felt like a had a real period minus heavy bleeding. I also have had colcoscopies done for displesia and when pre cervical "bad cells" in the third lining of the cirvex. I also started smoking recently 5 moths ago.
maybe u shud just have a little break from depo... Ive read about that anyway..u shud have a break from depo every 2 years. Ive been on the depo 6 month and i came on lightly for all that time,,, now im off it been off it 4 month my periods are terrible.. maybe u shud go see your gp..you have to expect different symptoms every now and then but i think its normal just your body reacting different this time.. x
Yes, I had exactly the same happen to me.
What sorted it for me was bringing my next couple of shots forward to about 9 weeks instead of 11 or 12 (whichever you're normally given it at).
After that I could return to the normal duration.
You might also want to get checked out for other possible causes, but that's what the problem was, for me.
