I have been on depo it will be 9 years this July. I have an autoimmune disease which prevents me from taking just anything for birth control. I had irregular bleeding for about a year and then absolutely nothing. Recently I have started spotting and horrendous stomach pains. My next injection isn't due until the 22nd of this month. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm freaking out a tad bit because this is so out of the ordinary. I see one of my doctors on the 11th however, with the amount of pain I am experiencing I am wondering if I should try to get in sooner.
