Time: Good morning! It can take up to year for your cycles to regulate again after depo. If the symptoms bother you, you could always try other forms of birth control-your doc can help you decide what's best for you! :)

Probably nothing: Midcycle bleeding is not rare. Brown just means old blood that has been sitting in the back of the vagina for a long time. If this is not normal for you then it should correct itself over the next few days. Consider taking birth control for cycle regulation and contraception.

Prob your period : The brown discharge was likely your period just a very different one. Brown equals old blood. It is common to have an "off' cycle every now and then. If your pregnancy test is negative then you are not pregnant. Schedule a visit for birth control if you do not want to be pregnant.

It's probably: Just the tail end of blood that was remaining. The fact that it is brown means it is older ; deoxygenated.
