No periods after getting depo provera shot. Brownish spotting after intercourse. Is it normal?

I have been on the depo provera shot for almost 3 months now. I got it for the first time in January, had sex in late February, and had very little brown discharge once. I haven't bled at all since I've been on it. I did sexual activities Sunday night and Monday and today I have had very little brown discharge. Is this normal?

Thanks for the query.
Depo Provera can cause menstrual irregularities like amenorrhea, breakthrough bleeding etc.
These are common side effects of hormonal injection.
But if you are having repeated post-coital bleeding, better to get examined once to rule out other possible causes like cervical erosion etc.
If the spotting repeats or increases you can go for symptomatic treatment.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
