    Definitely not normal to my knowledge. Sometimes spotting or bleeding a bit is normal when you first start. I havent bled in the 3 years ive been on it. Id go see a doctor or at least call because bleeding that long could potentially be harmful.

    Doesn’t sound normal. I’ve been on Depo for 10+ years and have only had 2 periods that only lasted maybe a week or less.

    I can’t say if it’s normal or not but when I first got on the depo shot I bled almost every week for about a year and I got multiple opinions from doctors that said that was fine (?) and then after that I have not gotten a period in the past few years I feel like I have heard different things from everyone with the depo but definitely bring it up to your doctor!
