Brown discharge is not unusual when a woman is on depo provera, even if she hasn't had bleeding for months. However, the tissue is not normal, although it's had to know what it is without seeing it. I would recommend that you see your doctor for evaluation. It could be anything from some thick cervical discharge to a cervical or uterine polyp or fibroid. It could also be a growth in the vagina. Most of these would not be serious.

The itching may or may not be from a yeast infection. It could also be an allergic reaction from the sex, either to lubricant, latex, or something else.

Tissue and itching don't sound like an STD. Abnormal bleeding is sometimes due to an STD, so it would be good to be checked.
