  • That doesnt sound good. I'd get to the doctor asap, or the ER.

  • You need to check with your doctor, most forms of birth control shouldn't be used if there is cancer present. I am also on depo after giving birth to my second daughter and I started bleeding for about 10 days straight...and this was 2 weeks after my regular menstrual period which was when I got the shot to begin with. It can cause irregular bleeding, and not all women stop having periods while on it. Usually, it takes a few shots before your period stops coming if it does stop altogether.
