Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
Spotting on the depo shot is pretty common, even when there has been no bleeding for many months. Sometimes it's due to stress, and often we don't know why it occurs.
An STD can also cause spotting, so if that's a possibility, I would see your doctor to be tested. Otherwise, time will probably take care of it.
