Hi reneeyoung,

You may want to post your question over in our Women's Health Community -- the members there may have had an experience similar to yours and can offer advice or support. Here is some information on the Depo shot that I found. It lists irregular periods and spotting as possible side effects. If you have been bleeding non-stop for the entire time you have been on the shot (and are still now), it would be a good idea to make an appointment to see your gynecologist. He/She is best able to diagnose what is happening and provide proper treatment options after an exam.

Best wishes,
