Is bleeding or spotting sometime, but not on regular schedule normal?
Spotting between periods is common for women using Depo Provera. About half of women using Depo Provera will stop having periods entirely after the first year of use. If the bleeding is excessive or painful, speak to your health center


When should I take next due shot?
In order to remain effective, you must have a Depo shot every 3 months (12 weeks). This shot can be given up to 2 weeks before your due date or up to 1 week after your due date.


Is it normal to miss my period when using Depo Provera?
About half of women using Depo Provera will stop having periods entirely after the first year of use. Some women experience this earlier in their use of Depo Provera.


Is it safe to use Depo Provera for a long time?
Studies have linked Depo Provera use to temporary bone thinning. Women who use Depo should be especially careful to take calcium and vitamin D supplements and to get plenty of weight-bearing exercise, such as walking, running, or weight lifting. For most women, Depo Provera should not be used continuously for more than two years.
