My girlfriend took the first depo shot in august. She has been having a heavy period for 4 weeks straight now and it is starting to worry her. Is this a normal thing for some? If not what should we do about it? I'm thinking of telling her to ride it out and not take the shot again but if there is something else we can do, keep her on the shot and not have the month long period please tell me what that solution could be.

 

so in short my questions are.

1. Is a month long ( 4 weeks) period normal on the depo shot?

2. What can we do about it if it is/is not?
