I have been on the depo shot for almost 6 months. Before the depo shot I had long continuous periods and bad period symptoms. I have had my period since before my first shot and it still hasn't gone away. It can be light or heavy and might stop for at most 2 days and then starts again. I also see blood clots commonly now but I had never seen them before being on depo. I understand the shot can cause irregularity but I have had my period for almost 6 months now. Is there something I should be concerned with? I saw online that this was a serious side effect and to call my doctor but didn't know if it was true.
