Well irregular spotting is sometimes seen in depot medroxy progesterone acetate injection taken for birth control. But i don't think you have to worry as such. These spotting may not be the cause of your anemia (paleness), and you should think of other causes for the same and take treatment.
If you are not really happy with the injections you can consult your doctor to change to other methods of birth control .Take care, bye.
