Could be pregnancy!: I don't want to worry you, but the brown spotting you are having could be implantation bleeding, i.e., the kind of bleeding women may have in the very early part of pregnancy.

A number of things: It can take 6 months after stopping a depo shot before periods return to "normal" assuming they were 'normal' to begin with.
