I was put on depo-provera injection so that I wouldn't ovulate because I suffer from Ovarian cysts. About40 days after i got the shot I started to bleed. Very heavy at times with blood clots. My dr. the suggested I try Premarin, and estrogen to regulate the bleeding. That didn't work. He told me then to take 2oomg of ibprofen 3 times a day along with the Premarin. That didn't work. I started bleeding 11/7/06 and it's now 12/26/06 and I am still bleeding, He put me on a birth control pill with has estrogen and progestrin. Has anyone experienced this problem and if so, what where u given to stop the bleeding? And if u were put on birth control pills how long will it take the bleeding to stop? :confused:
