Bleeding while on depo shot?

Question Posted Saturday April 28 2012, 10:03 pm

im not really sure whats going on. i have been on the depo birth control shot for almost four years now and i have only had one normal period and it was after my first shot. i havent had a period since then until about three months ago.. i was late for my shot about four months because i didnt have health insurance.the whole four months i didnt have any spotting or anything until the fourth month of missing the shot. the period only lasted about four days. i got my shot on the third day of bleeding because i cant stand periods. went about two and a half months with no bleeding, but now im bleeding again. i was just wondering if i was just stressing myself out and thats what causing me to have a period? the cramps are horrible. i double over in pain and sometimes cry they get so bad. ive been having really bad heartburn, my breasts are tender and i sometimes have sharp pains in them, but they are also very big so maybe thats why? when i tried using a search engine all i could find was that i could be pregnant. and the bleeding and heartburn and breast tenderness were signs of early pregnancy. could this be true? could i be pregnant? i dont understand whats going on with the ordeal. can anyone help?

From what I've. Read online depo is known for bleeding and unexspected bleeding. The unexspected bleeding could be caused from the few days that you've missed and your body is just adjusting back to the way. . It was but I would go to the doctor to make sure you are ok. I found out this on "gooogle" type in side affect from missing birth control and go to the 3rd one and it has an article on "depo" I hope everything will be ok. Msg. When you found out everything good luck!
