Thanks for the query,
A depot is a injectable contraception .
Effect lasts for 3 months.
Inter menstrual bleeding is one of the common side effect of depo.
It will normalize after 3 months. Nothing to bother.
However, if bleeding is heavy and continuous, you need to consult your Gynecologist .
Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
