Concern about depo shot

Patient

Symptoms:  Fatigue , nausious but not as much heat flash
Doctor

A:   Hello,
If you have recently stopped your depot injection and have not taken it after December then it is likely that you may have a scanty withdrawal bleed may be in the form of light discharge or even spotting. This may however get regularized in a month or so once ovulation is re-established. So in case you are planning parenthood then you must use ovulation kits to time your ovulation and learn about your fresh fertile period and accordingly try for conception.
I hope I have answered your query,
wishing you good health,
regards
