Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Depo shot usually causes such irregularity in the bleeding and blackish spots can be seen intermittently. There is nothing to worry. This will continue as long as the effect of that depo shot is there.If your periods are overdue then you might need hormonal withdrawal therapy.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.

So i have been on the depo shot for about a year now and lately ive been really hungry, i had really bad cramp like pains last weekend and today i have started having dark colored discharge clumps and im not bleeding. I dont have to go back to get my shot for another month so why is this happening?

I believe my Depo Shot had expired a month ago, but I still have not had any signs of bleeding. I did experience what I thought were cramps, though, around the normal time of when I used to get my periods. Is it normal to not start the period again for a month or 2 after the shot has expired ?

Hi I have been sterilizes about 3 years ago and went on depo injections just to be safe. I stopped taking it more that 8 months ago but did not have my period. About a week ago I started cramping and the intensity increase untill they were unbearable. I started spotting very mildly but with extreme cramps. I just saw a flesh like clot that looked almost like a grape bunch with tiny bloodclos on ot. Can it be that I miscarried? but how since I was sterilised and the cramoing did not stop at all, or could it be that is a piece of the wall of my uterus that came loose after not menstruating for almost 3 years?

I have a girlfriend who has had the mirena in now for 3 years. She mentioned this past week that she thinks it has moved. She said everytime she pees it feels as if her mirena is going to fall out. Now she is so sick she cant move. Could the mirena be causing her to feel this way?

Hi i am 31 and have had the mirena coil for five years. This afternoon my stomach became extremely bloated and aching. My husband and i had sex last night and after i bled quite alot which never usually happens. Is this possibly linked to my coil or a separate issue altogether?

About 11 months ago, I got the mirena iud. I had some very infrequent spotting for a month or two and then stopped getting my period. Recently, I noticed that my nipples (but not the actual breast) were very sensitive, almost sore. My boyfriend and I have sex without condoms almost every day, so I m wondering if I might be pregnant. I have also noticed an increase in: appetite, fatigue, libido, mild cramping, and lower back pain. I also can t feel my iud strings anymore though my boyfriend says he can. I took an early response home pregnancy test two nights ago, and it came back negative. I still just have a feeling I might be. What is your opinion? I know iuds are supposed to be really effective, but nothing s perfect, and I just want to be careful.

I ve had the Mirena for almost 4 years and hardly ever bleed. If I do it s light brown discharge and this happens only twice a year. The last month ive had light brown discharge with a foul odor. I lasted 4 days. 3 weeks later my discharge stated again but this time it changed from brown to green to red in a day. Now im bleeding lightly with the same foul scent. Im going to the doctor tomorrow but do you think this can be because of the Mirena? e the foul duscharge.
