... period ? I've had slightly bloody discharge and today a little spotting and I'm cramping I've been on depo for 9 months now
My understanding is that you haven't had cramping and spotting until now? Most patients have some sort of irregularity with Depo the first few shots. But there are no real rules as to how you will react. You probably will just continue with cramping and spotting for a few days and then it should resolve. If it doesn't you should go to your provider and request GC and Chlamydia cultures. Infection can cause cramping and spotting.
So to answer your question you could get a period or just cramping and spotting. This should resolve quickly or as suggest above see your provider. Ptoon
It can happen with Depo Provera. It's a nuisance, but nothing to worry about.
Going for your shot at the earliest point in the window they've given you, can help.
Try that & let us know if it helps. There are other things I can suggest if not, but you don't really want to try them until you find out if it stops on its own.
