Continuous bleeding after taking depo provera shot. How can I stop it?

I got the depo provera shot about two months ago, and two weeks ago my period started and has had no signs o stopping anytime soon. Ive never had a period even close to this long! What can I do to stop my period as soon as possible? Ive heard of starting birth control pills, but is that safe if the depo doesnt wear off for another month?

Since you have symptoms of hormone imbalance, you may need additional hormone supplements to control your bleeding. Yet, you should get a proper evaluation first to see the exact cause of the bleeding. If the depo shot is the culprit, you may stop using it and switch to another form of contraception. Coagulation profiles, hepatic function assessment and urinalysis also may be needed. A hormone profile and a pelvic/trans-vaginal sonogram aid in the diagnosis. Hope your query has been clarified. Wish you good health.
