I have had one depo shot. Afterward I experienced spotting. 2 months later I still haven't had a period and the spotting stopped. Could I be pregnant?
Probably not: The depo shot is very effective contraception so you are not likely to conceive for at least three months after receiving the shot. The most common side effect of the shot is disruption of the normal cycle. Many women have irregular spotting and bleeding but some have no bleeding at all. The effect of the shot on the cycle can last for up to 18 months. ...Read more

Abnormal bleeding: May be due to a variety of things, infection, irregular ovulation, uterine fibroids or polyps just to name a few.

It depends...: Vigorous sexual activity can cause irritation to the vaginal walls or cervix and result in spotting. If persistent, considerations include: infections, abnormal cervical cells-dyslasia, endocrine (thyroid, etc.). The most important next step is to get an examination with testing for vaginal infections, STIs, a Pap smear, and pregnancy. Also, if birth control pills are skipped, spotting can occur. ...Read more
