  • sounds pretty normal to me but you should not be bleeding much longer. I got Depo before I left the hospital after having my son and I bled for about 2 and a half to 3 months after than my regular periods started again.

  • How much blood? Like spotting or like you are filling up 1-2 pads a day?

  • The depo will do that. I bled from the time I had my son until I went off the depo nearly 2 years later with only small breaks of no bleeding in between.

  • Hmmmm....I don't have any experience with the depo shot and how it would have affected you, but my personal experience was that I was spotting for almost 3 months after delivery. I had an IUD put in 6 weeks after delivery and when I kept spotting I called my OBGYN and he said that it was normal. It couldn't hurt to call your OBGYN and ask just to be safe and for your own peace of mind.
