Brief Answer: Please find detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thanks for writing in to us. You are very young and at this age, your body still needs time to prepare itself for adulthood. The periods can vary from scanty to heavy flow and also you have stopped depo shot a year back which accounts for irregular flow. If you've had pregnancy tests at least 15 days after your last unprotected sexual intercourse then most likely you are not pregnant. The cramps can be a normal phenomenon in your body but if it is associated with continuous pain, burning urination or lumps and bumps in the genitals then an urgent visit to your doctor is important. The risk of sexually transmitted diseases remains in having unprotected sexual intercourse and you should always insist on your partner using condoms to for healthy sex. Wishing you good health. Do write back if you have any doubts. Regards, Dr.Vivek
