On depo provera, had light pink spotting on wiping post sex, brown discharge after urinating, negative pregnancy test. Is this normal?

I am on Depo Provera , I have had 2 shots so far...last saturday my husband and I had unprotected sex and the next morning, after I wiped, I had light pink blood on the toilet paper. Since then I have had brown discharge after urinating. Im worried I am pregnant, although I did take a test my 2nd month on Depo because my husband and I had unprotected sex 2 weeks after my shot, the test was negative. Are these symptoms normal on Depo or should I take a test and schedule and appt with my doctor?

Welcome to HCM.
You have taken 2 shot of Depo Provera so far.You did unprotected sex and got pink blood in the next morning.Now you present with brown discharge after urinating.It is not fresh bleeding.
So possibility of pregnancy is almost nil and Depot is an effective contraceptive method with failure rate 0.3 HMY.So don't be much worried.
It is probably due to effect of Depot and it causes irregular vaginal bleeding,delayed period,nausea & vomiting,spotting,abdominal pain,psychological upset,headache,wt changes etc. particularly in first 6 months of use.
One more concern that it may causes prolonged infertility after discontinuation of Depot.So periodical check up is mandatory and consult with your doctor.
Be well.
