It may take a while for her body to adjust to being off the injection. You will just have to be patient. If the bleeding is heavy, she should go back to the doctor.
There is nothing you need to "clean out your system" other than a healthy diet and avoiding smoking and alcohol. Your girlfriend should start taking folate tablets if she is planning to conceive.
There is no reason not to make love during a period.
