Hello,

Depot preparation have less possibility to cause heavy periods although it is possible that it remained there unnoticed due to use of depot contraceptives. I mean to say that hormones used in depo injection are same which are used to treat heavy periods and this could have obscured the problem for a while.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ashok Kumar,
