Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that the bleeding will very likely improve if you continue to receive the injections.  The migraines may NOT improve, and because of that, I might consider opting for another method of birth control.  The Mirena IUDs are very popular, and might be a good alternative.
Good luck!
