I am on day 13 of my period and am experiencing light bleeding which started about an hour ago. The blood is light brown in color.

Sorry! I am on day 13 of my cycle. I had my period about a week ago.

The answer would still be the same - this may be due to coming off the Depo shot. This may happen for the next several months. Each woman is different.

Hello km0901

Thank you for writing.

Are you on day 13 of your cycle or day 13 of your period?

You mentioned before that you have just come off the Depo shot. Periods can be irregular for the first several months of coming off the shot so this may be why you are experiencing this bleeding. Your gynecologist can help you further.
