I haven't had a period since 6 months maybe of getting the shot. It's been a while. Recently I got some slight brown discharge and a tiny bit of cramping. Is this normal? I've been on it almost 3 years. I haven't had any brown discharge for a while until now
Your body is telling you to stop.
The Manufacturer advises that you should not be on Depo Provera as long term contraception (longer than 2 years), unless you have no other option. You can see that by going to the Manufacturer's website.
They say that if you have no other option, then you need to take breaks every 2 years. This will sort the spotting.
