My vagina is itchy and irritated. I was massaging it due to the itchiness and it began to bleed. What do I do? I was just treated for chlamydia earlier this week. I am also on the birth control, Depo-Provera shot. Could this be any factors as well?

How long could it take for me to get my period after getting off Depo-Provera shot? And can I get fertility drugs to help me get pregnant faster?
