Unprotected sex, brown vaginal discharge, delayed periods. Depo shot taken. Causes for symptoms?

Hello. I am 18 years old and back in April I got the Depo shot. I didn t like how it made me feel so I never went back and got it again. Since then I ve only had my period once, but I started my period the day before yesterday also. I have been sexually active and a little over two weeks ago I had unprotected sex. When I started my period I noticed the blood is kinda clumpy and it s brown. Plus it only comes out when I wipe after I pee. I took a pregnacy test and it said I wan t pregnant. I m also having really bad cramps , mainly in my back. What should I do?

Hi thanks for your question.
Irregular periods do occur after Depo shot .
You have not concieved from sexual act ,as your pregnancy test is negative and your menstruation occured after sex.
The sexual act was not unprotected since you are already taken Depo shot.
Abdominal cramps do happen sometime before and sometime during periods .There is nothing to worry.
You can use analgesic antispasmodic drugs(pain killer) for pain and spasm.
Hope this answers your question.
