I got my first shot August 2016, it's now October and I have had this brown discharge almost daily since getting the shot. I am sexually active and it's very unattractive, it makes me feel very self-conscious and kind of gross, and I'm worried that this won't stop since it has been two months already. Is there any way to stop it? At all?
It's very common until you've had 2 or 3 shots. Everyone is different, so it may not take as long for you.
Brown discharge could simply just be premenstrual spotting or breakthrough blood which is a common side affect from the depo shot. There is no way to make it stop. It could continue for a couple of weeks before your period actually comes on. If you have any other symptoms such as burning or nausea I recommend that you consult with your doctor to rule out any STDs or other issues.
