How long have you been on it? How many shots?

This is my sixth or seventh time now

The Manufacturer recommends you take a break every couple of years, so this is most likely your body telling you to do that.
There are ways of force-stopping the bleeding, but I wouldn't recommend it. It's always best to listen to your body.
