Patient :Three weeks ago I took the depo-provera contraceptive injection, It was injected on the third day of my period. My period stopped in the next 3 days. I was not sexually active for the next week after that and I had no signs of bleeding. However, I then became sexually active with my partner and I experienced bleeding. The bleeding only occurs while we are having sex, I may experience a few odd spots during the day, but it is very uncommon for that to happen. The only time I find the bleeding is once something has penetrated my vagina. This has been going on for about 2 weeks and I have started to become extremely worried. Please help me.
Symptoms: Irregular vaginal bleeding, bleeding only during sexual intercourse or penetration
