... would get a period a few days after I had sex. This is still going on and it's concerning. Is this typical? Should I switch to a different form of birth control?
Yes, it's very common until you've had 2 or 3 shots.
For some women, it does happen after that, but can be controlled by getting your shot earlier than 13 week intervals.
Hopefully it'll just stop after 3 shots for you, when your body has had time to adjust to the new level of artificial hormone you're putting into it.
