Bleeding after getting off depo shot. Had unprotected sex. Abdominal pain, brown spotting

I just recently got off the depo shot. I ve been bleeding since September (why I changed). I had unprotected sex about a week and a half ago. Monday morning I got sick and was tired all day, then this morning when I woke up I threw up and it felt like my stomach was going to be tore out...after that happened I ve had this sharp pain in my lower abdomin with I walk around or lay on one of my sides...and when I wipe there is dark brown blood(?)..but only when I wipe.

Thanks for your health query.
Irregular menstrual bleeding after discontinuing the depo shot is very common.
Also, nausea is also common.
However, all your symptoms could point to a possible pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy.
Kindly consult your healthcare provider immediately for a check up and ultrasound evaluation.
Take care.
