Birth Control Depo Provera

Patient : Hi, so i recently got my first ever Depo shot June 23rd. I had a normal period July 16 - 19 & began breakthrough bleeding July 22nd. Ever since then I've been bleeding. Yesterday I had really bad cramps, and I shed the lining of my uterus. Thinking it was a miscarriage I rushed to the hospital; but they confirmed it was just the lining of my uterus. I wanted to know how long until my bleeding now stops after the lining of my uterus has shed ?
Symptoms:  None
