hi,since you have used depot shots your cycles have become will take you a couple of months(2-3) for your cycles to become normal.its quite common after discontinuing depot.if u r experiencing heavy bleeding you can tab trapic 650 mg twice a day for 3 days,it ll reduce the excess bleeding.there is nothing to be worried.take care.
