I was on the injection Nestrate, for a while. I then changed over to Depo. After changing, my first period arrived, and has now lasted for almost three weeks. What could the problem be. It is also not got a wonderful smell either.

Please could you advise on what to do with this problem.

Irregular bleeding is common on Depo provera. It usually settles after the second injection.

Best wishes
