HELP! non stop vaginal bleeding

My mom made me get the depo shot when I was 16 (Almost 17) before I was even sexually active. I got a period maybe 2 to 3 times but when I got the shot... I didn't bleed at all for about 2 years. I bled non-stop for about 3 months & It stopped for 10 months. It started bleeding again badly for the past 7 months. It only stops for 3-5 days at a time & Comes back again . Im scared, Am I Able to have kids (when the time comes) . I'm only 20 & the constant bleeding is depressing :-( Please help me! I need answers!

Hi!
If you were my patient I would advise you that your fertility is probably fine.
I would probaby recommend a short course of oral contraceptives (even if you are still on the Depo. That should stabilize the lining of your uterus and stop the bleeding within a few days.
There could be more than one cause for the bleeding.
Hope this helps!
