  • Seven weeks isn't all that long. I bled longer than that from my first 'easy' vaginal birth. I don't know if depo is supposed to stop the bleeding?

  • Everyone I know that has been on Depo has crazy bleeding on and off. I would guess it is the Depo causing the bleeding. If you are really concerned, call your OB and ask to speak with a nurse.

  • Hmmm not sure. I had a c-section on Sept 5th, bled for about 4 weeks, stopped completely for a week and then I got my period for another 7 days!!! I was SO mad especially since I am breastfeeding i was really hoping i wouldnt get it for a while! I would Call your OB just to be sure this normal. You usually bleed less with a c-section......7 weeks seems kinda long to me.

  • Not normal with a C- section, but with the depo it is.
