I got my very first depo shot in may, i am due for another Aug.2nd. I am not going because i do not like the depo. I usually get my period the 1st week of the month, but haven't gotten a period since my 1st shot. I have now had brown discharge for 4 days. Could I be pregnant?
It's normal to have this discharge, spotting or bleeding until you've had 2 or 3 shots. If you stop getting the shots, you can also get this for some time. Everyone is different, so it's impossible to know how long it may last for you. For some people it can be a year or two, & for others just months.
I know I’m very late reposting this but I’m questioning the same thing I was on depo for 8 months I recently stopping using my last opening to get the shot was end of June into the beginning of July and I didn’t get it then in August I had sex at the end of the month and surprising I had egg white discharge the next day which lasted 4 days then started having brown discharge that now been lasting for 3 weeks I had some symptoms like cramping , bloating , feeling nausea , kinda peeing more often and Breast changes I was thinking it’s just the effect coming off depo but it’s been 4 months now and I’m still experiencing these symptoms please help !!!
