The only one time ive ever used birth control was after my third son was born. I got the depo shot 2 days after he was born on October 31, 2013. I did NOT ever go back to get any more shots. Since then (besides the bleeding from after pregnancy) i havent had a single drop of blood or period since, and last night 1/23/15 i finally noticed a very light brownish-pink color in my underwear, wiped myself and saw a little on the toilet paper. Today, 1/24/15, there was a little bit more but didn't last longer than an hour, and is now darker brown. I have had unprotected sex in the past few weeks multiple times but its hard to tell if this is the start of my first period or if it could be implantation bleeding. Could this be possible even though i havent had my first period back yet? Any help is appreciated!
I am sure you have sorted out the answer for yourself by now, as unfortunately no one answered your question at the time you asked it, but I'm replying now, in case it is still useful to you or anyone else coming across your post.
It looks as though you have started to see your body balancing itself out after all this time, & regaining your fertility. This could mean that you have already ovulated for the first time, or it could be that your body is building up to doing so, & your hormone levels are changing, which can cause the breakthrough bleeding.
It is therefore possible that you have ovulated without ever seeing any bleeding, & have therefore conceived & are experiencing implantation bleeding. It is more likely though, that you are just seeing the start of things beginning to get back on track with your fertility.
