I had my last Depo shot in December and decided to stop getting it (after gaining 20 pounds in one year). I chose to go with the copper IUD for replacement. I have had multiple periods since stopping Depo and with the cycles comes heavy bleeding with large clots. The bleeding can be so heavy that I soak through multiple pads in an hours' time. Is anyone else familiar with this?
Yes, I had the same. I bled for 2 yrs & gave up & went back onto Depo Provera.
Then the next time I came off Depo, I used a natural remedy that balances your hormones. It worked a treat within a couple of months.
I could tell you the name of it etc. but you can only use it if you're on a non-hormonal IUD/Coil. Do you know if yours is hormonal. If not, do you know the name of it?
