Birth control shot witha long period or bleeding


Q: I have been on the birth control shot for about 4 months now. I've been experiencing very irregular periods. The first three months being on the shot my period was regular 7 days. Then I was off my period for a week. Then I got my period again but this time it was 2 weeks. The sencond shot I got after 3 months my period has been on for 32 days more than a months. I want to know why am I bleeding or on my period for that long. Is that the side effect of the shot. Or what is the cause of the long period. My bleeding is sometimes light and then heavy. Please help me on this. I'm reall sacred something is wrong with me.
