Post Preg Bleeding Rss

I have been for my six week check up and the dr said i was having my first period.
it has been three weeks and i am still bleeding heavy. I had a Depo Vera shot two weeks ago.
Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. It sounds as if you may be having some side effects from the Depo Provera injection. If the heavy bleeding has not settled, you need to return to your doctor to be checked over and assessed. More unpredictable periods are common with this form of contraception. You may also have some prolonged bleeding associated with the birth so a check up is recommended.

Best wishes,
Alex.
