I have researched every little thing i could and i have talked to gynos gastro's and dr's about their opinions.

Female, 18, 1 pregnancy, Had a depo shot 10 months ago. Bleeding litely/medium flow for 10 months and still having periods for 7 days each month which is caracterized as heavy with cramping.

Been to fp, Dr. Prescribed Progestin for 5 days. Bleeding stopped and began the day after intercourse. Intercourse is painful. Always has been.
Blood flow is low. On iron for chance she may get anemia.
Abdominopelvic CAT scan showed negative.
Intravaginal Ultrasound showed normal cysts.

Went to a Gyno, prescribed an antibiotic for a tender cervix 7 days. Also prescribed progestin for 10 days. On the 4th day bleeding went away and began litely on the 10th day of medication. And went on for 3 days stopped and began 3 weeks later with a 14 day period.


Other symptoms are fatigue, headaches, tiredness, back pain, dizziness.
Stomach pain when pushed.

Signs are cankersores, and acne.

I have thought maybe some sort of cervical cancer or endometrial or leukemia. I never rule anything out because of age. So this has stunned me. I think the progesterone from the shot may have made the periods come about and possibly may still be involved with her menstrual functions?
