I've been on the shot since February 2014, so 8 months and I'm coming up to my 4th shot in two weeks. When I got the first one my bleeding stopped completely and I didn't bleed since until today! I'm having cramps like period pains and the bleeding is like a light period. Is this normal?
Yes its normal. Its toward the time for the next shot. You are protected up to the date you need the next one even if you have a period.
You might want to discuss bringing the next couple of shots forward by a few weeks. This is something my doctor has done with me a few times, & then I've been able to go back to receiving it at the normal intervals, as it has stopped this breakthrough bleeding.
