    Well, there's a lot of possible issues here. I experienced bleeding after sex with depo provera use. It has to do with the long-term effects of progesterone only drugs on your hormone levels apparently. If your progesterone is too much higher than your estrogen levels apparently the walls of vagina actually thin a little and you can get micro-tears. But there is also the possibility of cysts or fibroids causing the bleeding. You should definitely talk to your doc about this and maybe have a pelvic exam done.
