Hi this is the second time I've been on the shot i was on it about a year ago only one dos this time around 12 weeks being on it now I've had a light period for 8 days normaly it's only 4 days and I don't know what to do
Yes it's normal. The first time I ever received a depo shot I bleed for about a month and that was about a year ago... some heavy and some light and that started about a week after my shot. The depo has been one method that I've tried that cause very irregular period. This time I got the depo back in March and I didnt get my first period until april and I had a period that lasted 2 weeks, didnt have a period in may and it came back very aggressive in June as far as pain. So any type of period is almost normal one depo. Ur period become regular about 6 months in.
The bleeding you experience isn't actually a period, in that you don't ovulate (produce an egg).
If this doesn't settle down after your 3rd shot, your Doctor may consider giving you your next couple of shots a few weeks early each time. This usually stops any breakthrough bleeding, & then you can return to having the shot at the normal intervals.
