Hi I am 18 years old & female. I'm on the depo shot & have been for about 18 months with few problems just occasional spotting when my shot is due but this time I have just experienced random watery bloody discharge which now appears to have stopped almost like spotting. I recently did a chlamydia test which was negative and I'm pretty sure they tested for gonnorhea too & my boyfriend & I have no symptoms except from the one described above. I have some mild pelvic cramping. I'm really worried and I'm going home for easter in a few days so going to the docs at home would be difficult as I'm not registered there. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
Random bleeding? Worried watch

To add to this, I got tested as part of the national chlamydia screening programme, does anyone know if they test for gonnorhea too? also I had a uti a few weeks ago and the doctor sent my urine off 'to double check' it was a uti, would my urine have been tested for both then? Either way I'll try & get an appointment for the end of term but any info which could help put my mind at rest at least for the time being would be appreciated.

The screening probably doesn't, the 'sent off urine' may well be - it'd would have been a good idea to ask.
It does sound more like a UTI, and both C & G often don't have any symptoms in women. Has your boyfriend been tested?

Thanks for the reply, he was tested a while ago before we had sex so I don't think anything would've come from him & the boy I was with before was tested because he gave me chlamydia a few months ago which I got tested & treated for (that was a full screening so I didn't have gonorrhea from that) & my 3 month retest came back negative, the bleeding was definitely from my vagina not my urinary tract. I'm hoping it's just random spotting from my depo but I'll try and get an appointment in the week.

To add i had minor symptoms when I had chlamydia, I did have some bleeding but again I'm unsure if that was from the infection or my contraception. I have had 2 chlamydia tests recently both negative so I'm pretty confident it isn't that & considering the majority of males have gonorrhoea symptoms which my boyfriend doesn't, I asked him about it today (& my previous sexual partner hasn't mentioned anything) I'm confused as to what it could be..
