How longs are periods with the Depro Provera BC shot?

I had my first shot about 3 months ago and I am due for my next one in a few weeks. The first and second period I had with the shot were short and light but this last one has been going on for almost three weeks!! It is light but it wont go away and I am very crampy. Has this happend to anyone else?

  • I got lucky and didn't have periods when I was on Depo.

  • I avoided the Depo like the Plague because of all of the side effects and issues it can cause. I am now learning FAM. If your looking for an alternative I highly suggest it!

  • I have been on depo for almost 2 years and I have been lucky to not have a period or that awful spotting. I am scared though for when I have to go off it - what will my period be like then? EEW.
