    I first received depo i wanna say 2-3 years ago i only stayed on it for a year, and they kept telling me it was just spotting and i had it full blown period the whole time i was on it. Then i was swapped to seasonique and know going to lybrel (lybrel is a year round active pill so basically depo in pill form) im sorry your having that issue
