Non stop bleeding on depo

I have been on depo basically since i was 13. I am now 28. Never had no problems until few years ago. I would start to bleed about a month before my new shot was due and it would not stop until I go my shot. My doctor gave me estrodial to take to stop bleeding and it did but as soon as i quit taking it i started bleeding again. I thought for sure when i got my shot on feb 18th it would stop but it didn't. I have been bleeding very heavy for about a month now with no signs of slowing down or getting lighter. I cannot take any kind of bc pills (tried that and gained 15 pounds in one week) I also bleed even more after working out. Im trying to wait it out til my next shot is due at the end of april to see if it stops it but im afraid it won't. I just don't know what to do anymore. I believe the estrodial pills messed me up cause before at least when i got my next shot it would stop. Does anyone out there have any experience with anything similar to mine.
