  • That happend to me while i was on Depo. It will go away. if in another week it dosent, i'd go to the doctor and ask if there is anything they can do to make it slow down or go away.

  • That did not happen to me. It can't hurt to call the doctor!

  • When I was on it, all I did was bleed. They will either tell you to keep on it, or they will switch you to a different BC.
