Hello,
Depo shots are usually given after 3 months. Since you have recently started with the depo shots, it may take side effects of depo shot to subside within 3 months. But if you are bleeding continuously then it may cause anemia for which I suggest you to consult your gynecologist. She may prescribe medicines like hormonal contracpetives and tranexemic acid to stop bleeding.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
