Re: can anyone help

This is normal...the shot is wearing off....the brown stuff is normal too. I didn't like it so I stopped with the depo shot...but I hear that sometimes after a series of shots...people eventually don't get any its a personal decision to discuss with your Dr. But, to ease your mind...I was on that when I was younger...and I didn't like the brown stuff because it everyday for long periods of time. But that happened to me on the first shot...and I actually had that for about 6 months...I wasn't willing to try it again.

The brown stuff is old blood that was not expelled originally. That is nothing to worry about. Everyone has it at one time or another.
