Hey there XXXXXX.
The depot shot is pretty safe where pregnancy is concerned. The spotting may be unrelated. However, i have seen & had worse accidents. Hence i err on the side of caution. Please do a B-Hcg blood/serum test to assess the condition. If negative as i envisage it will be, you can breathe easier!
Trust this is clear & preecise & do hope it all pans out well inthe end. Cheers!
