I've been on depo for about two months and the first month I didn't bleed at all, (but I got the shot off my period) and now I'm on the second month, and I'm starting to bleed and it's getting heavier each day, will it stop ?? could I possible be pregnant ? I had unprotected sex but it was a month after the shot..
It's totally normal until you've had 2 or 3 shots. It could stop & start for a while.
Most women find that they get no bleeding, once they've had a few shots.
You are still protected against pregnancy, as long as you didn't have unprotected sex for 7 days after getting the first shot, & you always get your shots on time.
Getting them at the earliest point can often help to stop any bleeding. It works for some women. You're usually given a 2 week window to get it within, so try to go as early as possible within that window.
