I have been on the depo shot for almost 5 years now and recently I have been bleeding dark brown. At first is was just after sex or after being aroused but I have been bleeding for about a week or two now and it's not enough for a tampon.
This can happen after being on Depo a while. That's one of the reasons we are supposed to have a break from Depo every few years,
However, if that is not an option for you, you can ask for your next couple of shots to be given at 9/10 week intervals, rather than the normal 12 weeks. That will stop the bleeding, & you can return to having them at 12 weeks.
