I'm reaching the end of my first 3 months on the depo shot and I haven't bled at all since I got the shot. A few days ago I started spotting and it's becoming more frequent and heavier but my next shot isn't due for 2 weeks. Is this bleeding normal and when does it stop?
It's quite common to bleed in between shots until you've had the first 2 or 3. It should settle down after that.
