Its my first time on it.my next visit is in two weeks .the only problem I have is the spotting and a smelly fish odor..is there anything I can do to stop it without coming off the shots?or why is the spotting carrying on for so long?
The spotting tends to stop after 2 or 3 shots. For some women it is much sooner.
Coming off Depo can also trigger irregular bleeding, so it can be worth sticking with it for at least 3 shots.
As for the fishy odour, that's not the Depo. There is a common complaint called BV (Bacterial Vaginosis) that causes such odour, & you just need to visit your doctor to be given the correct treatment. Even if it isn't BV, you still need to get checked out, just to be careful. It is certainly not common with Depo.
