Breakthrough Bleeding on Injection?

  1. anonymous123


    I have been on the contraceptive Injection for over 3 years now, I take it regularly every 13 weeks as directed by my doctor. Recently I have had some bleeding it has been going on for 10 days now, it is fairly light but enough that I need to wear a sanitary towel overnight. The bleeding is mostly bright red/brown, with no other symptoms aside from the bleeding. I haven’t had a period since I started on the injection 3 years ago. What could be causing this and how can I make it stop?

  2. Hi anonymous123

    From your post I understand that this light bleeding is a new symptom and that you have not experienced this over the 3 years of using the contraceptive injection.

    If this is the case the best thing to do would be to consult your OB/GYN and let them know that this is not normal for you. They may want to run some blood work or hormonal analysis to make sure everything is ok.

    I hope this helps in some way. Best wishes.
