Probably normal: If you have a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD, which contains the same medication in Depo-Provera injections, spotting or bleeding is typical. See your physician if it persists, or is getting worse.

Break-through bleed: Break-through bleeding is not uncommon with contraceptives. If it persists see your doc to discuss options.
