Taking birth control pills, to control bleeding, depo shot. Is it going to stop the bleeding?

My dr. prescribed me ogestrel birth control pills to control the bleeding of the depo shot. She said to take it 3 times a day, for a week, and then.the next 7 days I was going to bleed heavily. Well I was wondering is it going to stop my period/spotting for the 7 days I take it? & is it going to stop the bleeding after those 7 days?

Hi. I think you must have been given a combination of estrogen and progesterone and depot shot does not cause heavy bleeding. It may cause irregular bleeding. taking the pills 3 times will certainly stop bleeding but once you stop it you are sure to have withdrawl bleeding. Get a scan done to see the cause of bleeding and continue the drug for a longer period in tapering dose to keep bleeding stopped. Thanks.
