Is vaginal bleeding a common symptom in women taking Provera tablets?

Hello doc, so I think I’m pregnant but I’m on the Depo Provera. I may I was was having unsafe sex and took my morning after 2/3 days later. I would repeatedly do that. Then I notice I was bleeding for 1 week after taken the pill. Meanwhile I was still having unprotected sex while I was bleed and he would continue cum inside me. In June I went on the shot and I’ve bleed for 5 months, some days no blood bit when I bleed it’s dark. Prior to that I have back pain, I throw up a lot, I have a heavy appetite, headache but I only have pain on the left side of my tummy and now it move to the back. Only my belly is getting big

Menstrual irregularities, persistent spotting, and even absent menstrual cycles can occur while on Depo Provera. However, I would recommend getting a pregnancy test done as well to rule out pregnancy.

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