I have had one kid, he is nine months old, and one month ago, I started bleeding, at first I thought it was just a period, but I haven't stoped bleeding since then. And it's heavy. Can anyone help me?

I am only 18 and gave natural birth, I just got off depo shot in march.

  • It could be effects from the depo shot your body probably readjusting. It can be effects from a new birth control your using or it could be a vaginal infection. You should really go to the doctor just in case

  • Please call your dr. It could be something very simple, but it could be a cyst, a fibroid, endometriosis, or any number of things. I once bled for 6 months. It is no fun. If you are actually passing blood, you could become anemic. I had to have a d and c at one point. Just take care of yourself.
