I have been on the depo shot for almost 3 years now, I know the risks. Every three months I go in to receive my shot.in the last month I would have my period, 5 days after I received my shot it would stop for two months then start up again in the last month and repeat itself ,it's been like that every time except this last time. I received my depo shot in may and have not stopped bleeding it's now August and I'm due for my next shot. I made up my mind that I will no longer be using this method. But I do not want to ruin my chances of ever having kids. So my question is should I just simply switch birth control methods or get off birth control completely?
