May not be depo: When did your symptoms begin? What is the relationship of being on the Depo-Provera and the stomach symptoms. It is difficult to just associate these symptoms with the Dep. without considering other possible related cause for the "twitch in stomach, feeling of wanting to throw up and itchy." A good history and evaluation by your PCP might find other possible causes for your symptoms.

May not be depo: It is difficult to exactly state that these symptoms are related to your Depo-Provera use.. How long have you been on the depo? You may need to follow up with your PCP..

Many causes: Your question is rather, non specific. However I assume you to have lower abdominal pain. Possible cause are intestinal causes, gastroenteritis, liver gall bladder disease, urinary , kidney causes or muscular skeletal - back pain - radiation . The first step is follow up with PCP and try to establish what are associated events which relate to the pain occurring.
