Hey! Uh I have been on the depo provera jag for over 3 years now, I got really scared I have been bleeding for about a week, some dead brown blood but some fresh, a clump of blood has just came out larger than a 20p coin. Should I be worried?

Thank you for your question.

This can happen with depo provera. Not unusual and not something that I would be concerned about too much unless the bleeding is really heavy when you need to be seen to be evaluated further and to rule out anaemia.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

I don't know if this means anything but when someone pokes me on my back, areas of my arm and legs it can almost feel like a bruising pain/ (feeling tender) is being left. It is 2:30 in the morning I do not want to wake up my parents by a phone call.
Thank you, ***** ***** have never had this with being on the depo and last time I had similar bleeding well a clot it was a miscarriage.

No it does not mean a great deal i.e. the symptoms that you mentioned.

They can happen normally but if they are persistent then I would like that you should be seen for this.
