Question: I had prolonged periods for like three weeks. My doctor gave me provera pills for two weeks. They stopped the bleeding for a week. Then spotting started and would not end. So my doctor gave me Depo Provera injection. The bleeding is much much lighter like 4 inches on a pad a day and when I wipe. I am obese and my ultrasound was totally normal. I do have heavy facial hair. What can I do to stop the spotting. Can apple cider vinegar daily help? I am losing weight as well four pounds in two weeks. I am trying hard to lose weight I know I have alot to lose. I am still a virgin.

Brief Answer:
Oral contraceptive pills will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The prolonged periods that you are having are likely to be due to hormonal disturbance. You need to have regular oral contraceptive pills to control this irregular bleeding. You need to consult a gynecologist for proper treatment. Losing extra weight will also help. Apple cider vinegar will not help much.
I hope this answers your query.

The gynecologist is the one who prescribed the Depo Provera. Will the Depo Provera not help with the hormonal imbalance ? Is it possible the Depo Provera takes time to work? I am afraid of oc pills because of the blood clot risk. Are their any natural remedies ?

Brief Answer:
Details below.

Detailed Answer:

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Depo provera will help in reducing the bleeding but it can take some time to show an effect. You can take a cooked banana flower with yogurt to increase the progesterone levels in your blood. Also you can boil coriander seeds -20 gms in 200 ml of water till the water reduces to a quarter. Drinking this water daily will also help.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
