Tinnitus: Tinnitus is not a disease, but a condition that can result from a wide range of underlying causes. Sometimes spontaneous, Aspirin toxicity or in your case, possibly related to your surgery and something as simple as a potassium imbalance. This explains the many home remedies you . It might be best to consult with an ENT for a complete workup as this may or may not have been related to your surgery.

Consult your doctor: You may need to talk to your surgeon or the doctor that did your block. The ringing may or may not be related to the block, that is, it may have simply started at the same time as surgery. If the shoulder block was continued as a continuous infusion of local anesthetic, then it could be related but usually the ringing would stop with the stoppage of the drug.

Unlikely.: The most fertile time of the month is about 2 weeks from the start of your period assuming that you have a period every 28 days. If your periods are shorter than 28 days, it is possible that you could have hit the fertile time. You will have to wait until you miss your period to get a pregnancy test. There is no way to tell if you are pregnant where you are in your cycle now.

Spotting is common: Spotting is very common in the first few weeks after you start taking Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injections. It is expected to resolve in coming months. If it does not resolve then you should see your gynecologist for examination.
