... when i got my third shot i didnt bleed for about two weeks and now it has started up again the doctors didnt really help last time i asked them what to do they just have me the next shot. should i be worried that i keep spotting and bleeding? and what can i do to stop the bleeding?
It is normal to have irregular bleeding until you've had 2-3 shots. Your body seems to be adjusting accordingly, as you've had slightly less trouble this last shot.
It's nothing to worry about, it is just annoying. It is hormonal bleeding, whilst your body adjusts to the shot.
If you find you are still having interim bleeding, then ask to have your next shot brought forward to 9-10 weeks, rather than 12. This should stop the problem, & you can return to having it at 12 week intervals, once you're no longer experiencing the interim bleeding.
