Hi there!

Depoprovera may be associated with irregular or excessive bleeding. I would suggest waiting for the episode to get over (unless he bleeding excessive/ prolonged, in which case you may see a gynaecologist); and if this (bleeding after an intercourse) recurs, I would suggest a detailed evaluation by a gynaecoogist to look for secondary causes such as ulcerations, erosions, infections, growths/ masses etc. and accordingly decide on an appropriate management plan.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
