Hello, thanks for using HCM.
It is likely that you were injected a hormonal contraceptive
which is a progesterone
. Depo provera
is a progesterone hormonal contraceptive that is injected by intramuscular route every 3 months. It however has side effects which include; reduced menses and after a number of doses no menses, spotting or repeated mild blood discharges through the vagina, in some cases occassional heavy bleeding, weight gain, mood swing
, abdominal discomfort , reduced libido etc. The degree of these side effects varies from individual to individual and could be severe necessitating a stop of the injections. However, once the injection has been given, only supportive treatment can be given as it will need just time for the the drug to fade out of the system.
For your case, if you experience very heavy bleeding you need to see a doctor, however, the repeated bleeding can improve upon subsequent injections with you not having your menses in later months.
Best regards and hope this helps you.
