Welcome to ehealthforum

Deposhots when taken for the first time are associated with side effects as irregular bleeding,spotting periodically and these are usually present for initial few months till the body is adjusted to the hormonal changes.If the bleeding is heavy and quite prolonged visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take care!
