According to Planned Parenthood, irregular bleeding is the most common side effect of Depo-Provera, especially in the first 6 to 12 months of use.
* For most women, periods become fewer and lighter. After one year, half of the women who use the birth control shot will stop having periods completely.
* Some women have longer, heavier periods.
* Some women have increased spotting and light bleeding between periods.
If you still have concerns about the changes in your period, you should talk to your doctor.
