It depends on you. I was on the shot for 2 years and never had a period. My sister was on it for almost a year and had hers almost all the time. If she wasn't heavy, she was spotting. If she wasn't at all and had sex, she would bleed during sex. Oh deffinately watch what you eat. They aren't kidding when they say you can gain as much as 10 pounds a YEAR!!!!!!!!!

Does your body fight off pregnancy by bleading after intercourse while on the Depo shot?

it is possible that some women might bleed a little after intercourse while on the depo shot The reason why some women on depo bleed after intercourse is because the injection makes the lining of her uterus very thin and weak. by making it thinner and weaker, depo can help prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the endometrium (uterine lining). When some women have intercourse, this disrupts it and the weak uterine lining will bleed a little. I have had experience with depo and have bled every time after intercourse when on depo. It is not your body "fighting" off pregnancy.

Yes. The depo shot is supposed to stop your period all together, making it less possible to become pregnant.

Now I've been on it for almost 9 months and don't bleed at all so it's a good sign that you don't bleed.
