I started my depo- provera shot November 12th, and I will be off of it February 12th. Its my only shot. I've missed my periods then all of a sudden I start bleeding. Its very bright, and very light. Constantly nauseous, and stomach is growling all the time. Plus many more pregnancy symptoms, but since I'm on depo I understand my periods will be messed up and stuff, I just don't understand the light bleeding which seems like implantation bleeding to me. Please help.
Depo works by causing your body to think it's pregnant, hence the pregnancy like hormonal symptoms.
The bleeding, however, is usually only until you've had your 2nd or 3rd shot, then it tends to stop altogether.
If you stop Depo, the bleeding can return for months until your body rebalances itself.
