On depo shot. Pinkish vaginal spotting and pregnancy test negative. What is going on?

I'm 22 and married and have been on the depo shot for 3 years now and I don't have periods at all I haven't one since the very beginning of starting this. I have noticed when I go to the bathroom and I wipe there's light pink blood. I took a pregnancy test about 2 weeks ago and it was negative. I'm confused what is going on with my body.

As per your symptoms, it looks like you have been experiencing some amount of breakthrough as happens occasionally while on the depo shot. You should also exclude urinary source of the bleed by a test. You should get a trans-vaginal sonogram to see if everything is fine and contact your health care provider for further support. Please maintain a healthy weight as weight disturbances increase the body's hormonal needs and cause such disturbances. Take care.
