I have been on medroxyprogesterone for only 1 dose, before then i rarely bleed any, but it is my last month before my next shot and i have been bleeding excessively. Enough to stain my clothing but not enough to show true signs of a period on my pad. It start 3/18/14 and now its 5/2/14 and i am still experiencing this light bleeding. How should I go out this?
Your actual periods stop as soon as you have the Depo Shot. What you can sometimes get is breakthrough bleeding, for the first few months on Depo. This is hormonal bleeding & not a period, in that you do not flush out the lining of your womb, because you don't have one. It's not needed because you're not ovulating, & therefore there is nothing to implant into a womb lining.
This breakthrough bleeding can be the case until you have your 2nd or 3rd shot.
