Thanks for writing in.
Depot shots of progesterone are known to cause withdrawal bleeding. This can be usually controlled by supplemental estrogen tablets. But in your case, a problem in the uterus will also have to be ruled out. I would suggest you see your gynaecologist who can perform an ultrasound and a uterine curettage to find out the exact cause of the bleeding.
Hope this helps.
