  • It is because of the hormones that are in the depo shot.... when u stop getting it ur body reacts to the missing hormone. Usually with most people you will have really bad cramping....

  • mostly because your body is cleaning most of the dead tissue that builds up inside your uterus from having your periods shortened due to the shot.

  • How long after you bleed, can you get pregnant? Or can you get pregnant while your bleeding?
