Hi all, just looking for a little advice or if anyone has experienced anything similar:
Im 19, perfect BMI, not pregnant & no children
I'm currently on the 3 monthly Depo-Provera injection.. The first injection was completely fine and actually stopped my periods (which is great because I suffer from extremely heavy and painful ones). The second injection I had very light bleeding but was not fresh blood, it was brown in colour and was alot thicker than fresh blood in the last week before my 3rd injection was due. The Third injection I had light bleeding (same kind of blood as above) two months in, so a month before my 4th injection. I had my 4th injection at the end of October and the strange brown blood started around 3 weeks in and is constant.. its still happening now. I cannot take the combined pill as I suffer from migraines, and was using Micronor (mini pill) previous to the Depo, but went through very heavy very painful periods.
I've spoken to two GP's about the bleeding issue and if there are any ways around it, one suggested it might be an option to take the mini pill on top of the depo injection to keep my progestogen levels at what my body needs, but the other said no.
has anyone else had anything similar and know anything more about it?
