Sorry if some of this seems like too much info, but I really need to know if others have experienced this.
I had my one and only depo shot Nov 8th. My GYN told me I had to have it before he would perform a tubal (he uses Essure which takes 3 mo. to be effective) After I had the shot, I had what seemed like a normal period in Dec, then it all went downhill from there. I spotted quite a few times after that, then started bleeding Jan.7th, and didn't stop until the end of Feb.! I had about two weeks of no bleeding, then on March 10 started bleeding again. Just as it seemed to be acting like a normal period and thought it was going to end, something strange started happening. The bleeding would stop, until I had a bowl movement (TMI, sorry) then it would start again, and I'm absolutely certain it was vaginal. I did that for about 5 days, then yesterday, I stared bleeding like crazy again all the time again. I've been having terrible stomach pains before BM's, and it hurts when I pee, even though I don't have a urinary tract infection. I'm constantly having menstrual cramps and back cramps on top of all this. I've called my GYN, but they just keep telling me it's the depo, though it has been almost 5 mo since I had it. I've looked up these symptoms and everything I'm going through sounds like endometriosis or uterine cancer. Has anyone experienced all this on Depo, or should I start looking for a new GYN?
