Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. It is not unusual to have brown spotting after you take depo injection and have been experiencing pain for the last so many days. I wonder if they are just cramps. I would have you consult your gynecologist for a pelvic examination and the necessary recommendations. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
