I just had my first depo shot about 3-4 weeks ago. About 3-5 days after having the depo shot i had some spotting, that then went from spotting to a period (it all started around the time my AF would have possibily been due). I have now been bleeding for 2 weeks and although it has slowed down, it is still bright red and still having to wear a panty liner.
Has anyone else had experiences like this while on the depo? As i was told i would either have some spotting or not have anything at all...

Depo shot and bleeding

It's normal for your first depo. Most women bleed heavily or erratically until the second shot. Usually once you get the second it stops all together. I was on depo for 2years and I came off it in Jan. Getting your cycle back will be the hardest thing. I'm still waiting.
