Hi Doctor, I was using depo provera, I stopped it in February and now I keep bleeding now and then, sometimes it stops. What worried me now is that even when I have an orgasm I'd feel the contractions in my womb then bleed immediately after that, then it stops after that. Is there something wrong?

And how long does it take to get back to my normal period?

It is normal to have irregular bleeding after stopping Depo. It can take up to a year for your periods to return to normal.
