Bleeding

I got my 2nd depo shot on June 27th and about a week after getting it I stated bleeding and since then it hasn't stopped at all. Its been 9 or 10 weeks of me just constantly bleeding. How do I stop it? Is it normal? Do I need to stop taking the depo shot?

The depo shot can cause irregular bleeding such as you describe.  Please contact the clinic where you got the shot or Corner Health Center to discuss options for stopping the bleeding.  

Most irregular bleeding stops or decreases after the 3rd depo injection. 

I have a question. My periods have always been regular. I would always get them at the beginning of the month and they would last about 3 days. As soon as my boyfriend and I started to try and have a baby I'm now 2 months late. I've done urine tests and blood pregnancy tests and they're all negative but I'm showing a lot of signs of being pregnant besides the missed period. Looking for some kind of answer cause I'm so unsure of what's going on. Thank you!

From what you describe if you are not pregnant, you are having some hormonal abnormalities which are causing changes in your cycle and body.  

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center to discuss further and possibly do some additional tests.  

I missed my period in May and my periods in June, July and August were unusually light. It's like I bled for 5 mins on my entire 6 day period. I've always had a heavy period and this is scary. I exercise regularly, have a balanced diet and am not under any kind of stress right now except the unusual change in my menstrual cycle. I'm 15 and this scares me so much please tell me if i'm okay.

Most likely the changes in your menses is due to hormonal changes which is not unusual at your age. 

Excessive exercise and decrease food intake can also cause changes to your menses. 

If you continue to be concerned please talk to a trusted adult and /or schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

Hi! I had my first period about 80 days ago and haven't had another one since. What do you think is wrong?

It is not unusual for periods to be irregular and unpredictable for the first 1-2 years.  If you are worried please talk to your dr or a trusted adult.  

I think I may be having a miscarriage. I took a pregnancy test earlier this week and it was positive. My period was late and everything. I've been throwing up and having motion sickness. 3 days ago I started bleeding heavy. I'm also clotting. And the test is even fainter than before. Am I miscarrying?

If you had a positive pregnancy test and heavy bleeding that is a sign of a possible miscarriage.  

Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center.   If your bleeding is very heavy you may need to seek care in the emergency room. 

Stopped taking the pill in may, got my first period with out the pill after 30 days, 2nd cycle was 21 and now I am 9 days late at 37days still no signs, 3 negative pregnancy tests day 1, 2 and 7 late. No pregnancy symptoms either. Is there reasons it is not coming other than pregnancy ? Before going on the pill my period was regular and only out by 1-2 days every month. Was on pill 4-5 years. Could I still be pregnant despite 3 negative tests ?

It can typically take at least 2-3 months for the body hormones to get back to normal after being on the pill.  There are other things that effect the body hormones such as stress, diet, sleep.

It is unclear when first ovulation occurs so if you do not want to get pregnant a different type of contraception is needed.  

Hi! So I think I'm pregnant. About 2-3 weeks ago me and my boyfriend had sex. I am on the pill, I take it correctly, he used a condom correctly and he pulled out. Last week was my period week and I got my period on the day I was expecting it. It lasted 2 days. The bleeding was light and then it got heavier. The blood wasn't a light pink like normal but it wasn't dark brown like implantation bleeding. The day after it was over I went to the bathroom and I wiped off what seemed to be a blood clot but I'm unsure. Do you think I'm pregnant?

Based on everything you describe it does not sound likely that you are pregnant. 

Continue on the pill as you have been taking it.  Monitor how your next period is. 

 If you have any irregular bleeding, abdominal pain, abnormal discharge, fever see your primary care provider or schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center. 

I am on birth control and after I had sex the next day I started my period. Could I be pregnant?

Assuming "birth control" is the pill.

If you take the pill everyday at the same time there is very little chance that you are pregnant.  If irregular bleeding continues schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner Health Center to discuss further.  

If you have continued vaginal bleeding, vag discharge or any discomfort please schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner Health Center.

I am on the depo shot & I had sex three days ago & I am having vaginal bleeding. Is this normal? This has never happened to me before

Hi I had my depo shot on January and I was due for the next one on 30march due to corona virus I couldn't so I haven't had my periods since then and I started my periods on the week of 25th July and after a week I'm on my periods again ,why

Irregular vaginal bleeding is most likely a result of changes in hormones since stopping the Depo-Provera

Irregular bleeding can also have other causes. 

If irregular bleeding continues schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center.
