    Hi Kaz,

    I have been on depo for about 18 months, never had any problems really but sometimes when my injection is due I bleed a bit for a couple of days.

    I would do what the doctor suggests and just wait a while for it to settle, when did you have your injection? Was it your first one again this time round?

    Hope it settles down for you xx

    I will not give you the full details of my 18mth on depo but let me tell you it was pure hell and I never stopped bleeding!! The doctor always said leave it a few months and by the time I started to produce breast milk I had been through hell on it! Never ever again. But yes you can bleed on it!

    I've had the depo for years and returned to it earlier this year, I was shocked to have a bit of a bleed after 3 shots, but its all subsided now. It was the only time I have had that happen and I have used depo since I was about 19 and I'm 30 now. Having said that I have the depo 11 weekly rather than 12 weekly, as advised by family planning because of the bleeds. xx

    Depo really messed up my system. I wish I knew then what I know now, I would never have opted for it. Yes, you can bleed randomly on it.

    Yep I was the same started at 17 had no probs, had a few personal problems and kept forgetting it so nurse suggested the implant (big mistake I hated it)...bled constantly, when i came off it I fell pregnant (intended) but chose the injection after bubs and it wasn't the same :( Not using anything at the moment as i couldnt stand the mood swings!
