Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to our community for feedback on spotting associated with Depo-Provera.

Irregular vaginal bleeding, such as lighter or heavier menstrual bleeding, or continued spotting is one of the most commonly reported side effect.

Any further concerns you may have should be discussed with your gynecologist.
