You've lost me, what do you think periods are except for "bleeding"? When you are on depo you do not ovulate and you usually don't bleed.

You don't have periods on Depo. Some people find that they have what is known as 'breakthrough bleeding' until they've had two or three shots, others don't bleed much after the first shot. It's common to not have any bleeding once you've have a few shots.
If you have particularly heave or persistent bleeding while waiting for your body to get used to the drug, then you will need to be monitored by your doctor or clinic, so that you don't become anaemic.
