i haven't had a period since i started the shot and all of a sudden 3-4 days ago i started to bleed again. is it normal to have a random period while on depo?
That can happen until you have had 2-3 shots. Getting your shot at the earliest point you can, is helpful.
You've been quite lucky not to have more irregular bleeding before now. They aren't actual periods. Just hormonal breakthrough bleeding. You're still covered against pregnancy.
After about the end of the 3rd shot, most women find all bleeding stops.
The Manufacturer recommends that you take a break, every couple of years. This also helps lessen the chances of a decrease in your bone mineral density, that is known on Depo Provera. That decrease can lead to osteoporosis.
