Hello madam, well from the history you have given, depo provera does cause break through bleeding.....generally people on depo will have amenorrhea though the side effect of break through bleeding occurs...And also prolonged bleeding may worsen your health. ...i would suggest you to consult your gynaecologist, you may require a local examination and may be given medications like antifibrinolytics to stop your bleeding......
