Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. Even though this depo bleeding could occur right after your first Depo Provera injection, but “in clinical trials, over a third of the women had stopped having periods (this is called "amenorrhea") by month 6. By month 12, over half of the women had stopped. So you can wait, in bargain of future decreased bleeding.
Meanwhile you can follow few temporary methods:
1)"Supplemental estrogen -- Oral or transdermal estrogen
2)Tranexamic acid & mefenamic acid combination

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.

Wish you good health.
