  • Yep. I spotted the whole dang time when I had it before having kids. I got it again after dd was born and bled for 12 weeks! I thought I was going to die. It definitely worked as birth control since I wasn't having sex with a bloody down below.

  • Nope, i've had two shots so bleeding from the shot and no periods either....though, I hear it can be common to bleed for the first few months.

  • The first time I got the shot I bleed for months non-stop. Then I got off then years later got back on and nothing.
