One : One of the most common side effects of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is ammenorrhea, which is absence of menstrual bleeding. This occurs in about half of women using this form of birth control, and does not likely indicate that you have any underlying medical problems. Since Depo-Provera is given approximately every 3 months, this is a good time to discuss the side effects you are having with your medical provider. During your visit any appropriate work up or counselling should be done. As far as breast tenderness and enlargement is concerned, that is also a common side effect of Depo-Provera provera. It is important to note that you should still have your yearly pap and breast exam, or be seen by your physician if you feel any abnormalities in your breasts. ...Read more

Allergies would cause noticeable mucus drip down the throat. Throat or palate ulcers would have healed up by then also, but sometimes new ones occur every few days. A doctor can look to see if there is a cancerous growth or something stuck in the throat. ...Read more
