Experience

I bled every week from the week of my first injection. Sometimes heavily, sometimes just spotting. Sometimes it would go away for a few days, but it always returned. This caused me a huge amount for stress for 9months. The doctors kept telling me it would resolve itself but it never did and I had to give up on them.
