I'm currently 15 years old and recieved the Depo shot about a couple months ago
I recently started having sex with my boyfriend
In the last couple months,
We've had sex 3 times
The last time was 1 or 2 weeks ago
After we had sex
I started bleeding
At first it was just some spotting
Now it's like I'm on my period
I dont think I'm pregnant
So what does this mean?
Is it common?
What should I do?

Some women do experience bleeding while on the depo shot. You should contact your doctor and let them know what is going on. If the depo shot does not agree with you, you may need to switch to another form of birth control.
