The brown yucky stuff is normal. I was on depo for about a year and while i was on it i didnt have a period. for a while after getting off of depo i still didnt have a period and finally i started having the brown yucky period that didn't last very long. The first actual period i had was a 2 week period. later it finally straightened itself out and i started having the normal 7 day periods. For a long time after getting off of depo i began to think that the depo had caused me to become infertil. It took me 2 years to get pregnant. So if you're trying to get pregnant, it may take longer than you are expecting. Try not to get discouraged. I'm not recomending this method of birth control to anyone who wants to become pregnant shortly after getting  off of birth control.
