Not pregnancy related but im really hating and regreting getting the depo shot , I had my babygirl March 12th so I decided best birth control for me would be the depo shot (im also breastfeeding) .. But I been spotting for more than a week now & I read that it can be for days,weeks, even months ! Are you serious? I cant take it anymore does it really happen ? ..anyone been on the shot before? When will the spotting stop? ... Any help or advice .. Thank you ladies!

I hated the depo it made me fat! Lol there's plenty other alternatives but regardless with other birth control methods you will still have irregular bleeding u just have to find the right birth control for you. I went thru a few before I decided to just stick to the pill but everyone is diff
