User :   i had my first and only depo shot on jan 21st, my second was due in april, and since the end of april i have been bleeding pretty much non stop. i wen to the doctors today and she suggested i wait it out or go on b/c for a few months, so she prescribed mononessa. when she did a pelvic exam she said she didnt notice any blood comming from my uterus it was just on the walls of the vagina. she said it looked like it was starting to slow down, she also started me on prenatals since i told her my husband and i were trying to get pregnant. so she told mee to take to b/c pills a day til the bleeding stops then go down to 1 per day. is this a good idea since i want a baby or do i have a better chance at just waiting it out?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read
Doctor :   yes use of mononessa is the right option
User :   so when i stop it in 2-3 months will that mean im actually ovulating
Doctor :   as the prolonged bleeding is due to the withdrawl of the depot shot, and it needs to be controlled
Doctor :   though it is slowing down it has a tendancy to cause irregular bleeding
User :   so how long after i stop the pill can i actually get preg?
Doctor :   with in 2 to 3 months of stoping the pill u can become pregnant
User :   is mononessa a good brand to use? i know theres so many different kinds?
Doctor :   yes it is a good brand
User :   oh wow it will take that much longer after i stop the pill
Doctor :   pill is given to regulate the menstrual cycle as you were on depot shot
User :   can i just be on it a couple months or do i have to be on it for 3 months, cause she also gave me a refill
Doctor :   once you stop the pill after the next month you can get concieved
Doctor :   yes you need to be for 3 monhts
User :   i wish i was told all this about the depo shot before i took it
User :   ok
User :   ill start it tonight
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   is there anything else i can help you with
