Whats wrong with my depo shot?

Patient

Q: After I lost my baby in july I went on the depo shot in early august, I've had 2 shots now and I bled the first three months like you usually do and when I went for my second shot I was still bleeding and my doctor said that after this shot I shouldn't bleed after 2 weeks. And it seemed like the bleeding stopped EXACTLY 2 weeks after. Now I haven't been bleeding at all since then but a few days ago I started bleeding really heavy like a normal period! I have no idea what is going on and I'm worried that I might be pregnant again! Does anyone know what might be wrong?
