Hello! I am on my 6th round of the depo shot

Patient : Hello! I am on my 6th round of the depo shot. Usually I have a day of spotting, a day of a light flow, then a day of light spotting, then I am done for 2 months. This time it is different. It started off as a brownish blood flow, not heavy. Then the next day I have a heavy flow for 2-3 hours, then nothing for the rest of the day. It has been doing this 2-3 hour flow thing for 4 days now. Is this normal? What should I do if not? Thank you Jessica
