When did you last consult gynecologist?

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for your symptoms.
After depo injection, there can be irregular bleeding, spotting.
However, heavy bleeding needs to be investigated.
There can be hormonal changes.
Uterine changes, thinning ot thickening, fibroid or other issues can be there.
I feel you need an examination by gynecologist again.
An ultrasound, blood hormone levels would be helpful.
Treatment would then follow according to cause.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
