i was on the depo shot for almost if not 2 years, before the shot i had regular periods but after taking myself off the shot i did not have a period till almost 6 months later. now that i had my period it has happened about 4 times in the last about 4-5 weeks, the blood keeps on getting darker not like regular period blood.

It is not normal to have a period about 4 times in 4 to 5 weeks. Take tablet Meftal spas thrice daily for about 5 days. If the bleeding does not stop, please see your gynaecologist at the earliest.

It is common to have this kind of bleeding after coming off the Depo shot.

It may take some...

I'm running fever for the past three days back. On 7th night, I started feeling my throat itchy. On 8th by 12pm high fever (did not measure by must be atleast 101 and above) started. I had Odoxil tablet and Lemolinctus syrup. I had fever in the night to which I took crocin. On 9th, the fever was there. My throat itchiness had cleared but I had a running nose. The fever was higher now (measured 102). I kept having Lemolinctus syrup, did steam inhalation. At night, I had Odoxil again with multivitamins. At night, when I felt high fever, I had Meftal 500 tablet. Today morning I woke up with no fever but it started by afternoon. The running nose had stopped but either nostril is blocked and feeling congestion in the chest. I did not take any tablets today but kept taking Lemolinctus syrup. The fever is recurring every 3-4 hours. What do I do? I took Malaria and Dengue tests yesterday and the results are negative. CBC report shows ok on most except Esonophils (6.5%) Monocytes (10.5%) and Lymphocytes (17) are indicated higher. My weight is 80+ and have slightly higher BP. Last measured (last week) was 95 on the lower reading

Since you are 4 days late for your periods, it is best to do a urine for pregnancy test with the kits available at all the pharmacies. Taking tablet Meftal spas is not advisable till the pregnancy is ruled out or you get a proper menstrual flow.
