I had unprotected sex during my ovulation and a week later I got on a depo but now I'm discharging brown stuff. Is that normal or could I be pregnant?

I had unprotected sex during my ovulation and a week later I got on a depo but now I'm discharging brown stuff. Is that normal or could I be pregnant?

So, an injection mid cycle would not block or suppress ovulation and hence with unprotected intercourse one could become pregnant. Break through bleeding is common after you receive the first Depo injection. A pregnancy test will be necessary. Hope this helps! ...Read more
