Depo Provera, bleeding after a year and a half

Patient : I have been on depo provera for a year and a half and have never really had the break through bleeding or random bleeding most people get. I usually bleed just before the next shot is due for a few days and get the shot and it stops. My last shot I was late about a week and about two weeks after I got it I was in some pretty heavy pain and bleeding uncontrollably. I accounted this to the depos break through bleeding issue and thought little of it, I have now been bleeding for the last three weeks, I have had days with very little bleeding and days where I can barely function because of the cramping pain and amount of bleeding. I have done research and it looks like most people usually stop having the break through bleeding after a year. Could there be something wrong with me??
