The Pill and Depo at the same time
I decided in February of this year that I'd try Depo. So I had 2 injections. After the second one, I was bleeding constantly. It wasn't heavy or anything, just pain in the *** breakthrough bleeding. My doctor told me that while most women stop having a period on Depo, some women bleed constantly because of thinning of the lining of the uterus. I asked her if we could do anything to stop the bleeding and she told me yes, taking an oral contraceptive containing estrogen would stop the bleeding. She told me it was no problem to take the pills while the Depo was still in my system. I had my last shot of depo in August, so it'll be there til at least November. I took my first three weeks worth of pills and now I'm on the placebos. This is when I would be having a period. But I'm not. So I'm just wondering what could be going on. I really don't think I'm pregnant, seeing as how I'm on not one, but two forms of hormonal birth control. Plus, physically, except lack of period, I have no reason to believe I'm pregnant. I just thought I would have a period on the pill. Any ideas?
