medroxyprogesterone acetate (150MG/ML) for Contraception / birth control

I am 16 and decided to go on the depo to fix some very painful and nauseating periods, as well as contraception. I had it in January. I am still bleeding because of it today. Everything was okay for about a month, and then I got some spotting. I was fine with that as I thought it would stop after a little bit... boy was I wrong... the spotting turned into bleeding. I have been getting increasingly depressed and insecure due to the bleeding. Finally, my dad called the nurse and she prescribed me Tranexamic Acid and I finished a 4 day course on Monday, which did decrease the amount I was bleeding. I am now having a regular period, which the nurse said would happen. If after 7 days it doesn't stop, I have to get a scan to make sure everything is okay. If you are in the same position as me, then try and get whatever meds you can to stop this as it is horrid and can go on for up to 2 years after the injection wears off. If you are deciding, do NOT get this injection. It is not worth the risk if it doesn't agree with you. Good luck

UPDATE I have just had an internal scan and blood tests... everything is fine! Have literally just been told today that I am most likely ovulating irregularly and that is most likely causing me to bleed constantly. I have had irregular periods since I was 13... unless my ovaries just so happened to decide to be irregular, why have I never experienced constant bleeding before? I am now 17, so 4 years of periods... When I asked if depo had anything to do with me bleeding all the time, thinking my irregular ovulation and depo just teamed up to cause constant bleeding, the doctor replied with no, depo does not affect your ovulation... as if that was what I was asking Utter BS
