Bleeding on depo shot

I had a baby 2 months ago, I've been waiting to get my tubes tied and am doing so in October but I started me period on the day I got the depo shot as a type of birth control and since I had my baby I haven't stopped bleeding for more than 3 days should I be worried? because somedays it is aheavy flow and other days it's not but my husband and I have been very sexualy active could I be pregnent now? and if not, can they tie my tubes while I'm bleeding?

In my experience, Depo can cause you to have no period, or bleed like crazy. Some people seem to tolerate the shot due to their own hormone levels or something.
Bleeding like crazy is super common, but in all likelihood, you will need to try another form of birth control if you want it to stop. Get HIS tubes tied. Seriously......

I was on the Depo shot for 6 years.  I experienced constant bleeding for the first three months, and then never again.  A friend of mine had constant bleeding for a whole year, and decided it wasn't the best birth control for her.  About a month ago, my doctor informed me that depo has been proven to increase your chances of developing osteoporosis (being thin with a small bone frame),I stopped immediately.  They still will sell you the shot in the US, but it is not recommended.  It is 99.97% effective, so I don't think you have anything to worry about if you think you are pregnant.
