Been on the depo-provera shot for about almost two months, i've been having cramps like my period, is it normal to have dried blood that is like brown spots?

Normal: Depo-provera can lead to irregular spotting in quite a few women. It may get better with time. The cramps: you might try ibuprofen. If that doesn't help or the cramps get worse, see your doctor.
