The contraceptive injection that is available in the U.S. is Depo-Provera. It is a common side effect to have irregular bleeding, this is rarely heavy and may be dark brown. The bleeding may go on intermittently while you are using this method of contraception. If you have any concerns regarding infections you should see your health care provider.
