    1. Hello. I got my first injection onnthe first day of my menses. Then 14 days later I bled a little lighter than my regular period but still more than the usual spotting.

  15. Is there any side effects on you? Me too, I never take any contraceptives, it somehow had side effects and indeed just made me sick, but hoping not to get pregnant again though.
