  • The doc had to put me on premarin (sp?) to stop the bleeding when I had the depo shot. I would check with your doc.

  • I never did. I got the shot the day that I left he hospital after having my son and then got an IUD when my son was 10 wks old. I bled for close to 6 or 7 months, on and off. It was the most horrible couple of months of my life. I have since stopped, THANK GOD!, but the doctor told me that it was normal because of the depo and then on top of that the IUD.

  • i spotted the entire five years that i was on depo..i thought it was normal until i changed doctors. he immediately performed an ultrasound and took me off of depo. then i took the pill (yazmin) or yasmin. It worked for me until i had a tubaligation. What is up with that comercial on Yaz and heart attacks or deaths. Do you think it could cause birth defects?
