2Weeks oflighly bleeding. Back pain some cramps. Started Depo-Provera shot 2months ago is its side effects?

Possibly: Considering you had the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot 2 months ago and you weren't pregnant prior it is common to have an irregular, heavy, erratic period. Should you have more concern your doctor can check your urine and examine you for more appropriate measures. Good luck

Break-through bleed: Hi, It seems that you keeping up with your depo schedule. As with all depo users, the possibility of irregular bleeding is always there particularly as you get close to the time when you need another shot. Also the levels of Progesterone fall over the 90 days and there can be some break-through bleeding. This is what I believe is happening at this time.

I have terrible back pain around my ribs, and vaginal bleeding. What's wrong? (i'm on Depo-Provera shot, so I don't have a period)

Hmmm: The bleeding is likely related to the depo. The pain needs to be evaluated and is not likely related to depo.

Take a test: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. In minutes you will have your answer. Pregnancies on depoprovera are very rare.

Antibiotics don't: Most antibiotics do not effect birth control pills although a few can. They do not affect Depoprovera. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. See a doctor to address the many other things that can cause these symptoms if/when your test is negative

Due for next Depo-Provera shot. Had unprotected with bf couple weeks ago. Light period, headaches, lower back pain, fatigue. Could I be pregnant?

Not pregnant: No. DEPO works. Your symptoms do not in any way represent pregnancy. They represent infection most commonly. But they could also represent fluctuations in hormone levels as the DEPO wears off.

Chocolate makes me sick. Even the thought. Craving pizza. Back pain. Lower stomach pain. Spotting. Is pregnancy or wearing off of Depo-Provera shot more likely?

Chocolate makes me sick. Even the thought. Craving pizza. Back pain. Lower stomach pain. Spotting. Is pregnancy or wearing off of Depo-Provera shot more likely?

No guessing Here: First, if you are on depo then you are not pregnant. If you are weaning off of depo then you still are very much unlikely to be pregnant. Spotting is not in any way a definition of being pregnant. Food cravings and back pain are in no way definitions of being pregnant. If you doubt these facts then please do a pregnancy test.

No period 2 months, negative pregnacy tests, brown spotting for 1day, lower back pain, itchy breasts, Depo-Provera shot 6months 2"shotstotal" can I be prego?

No period 2 months, negative pregnacy tests, brown spotting for 1day, lower back pain, itchy breasts, Depo-Provera shot 6months 2"shotstotal" can I be prego?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. If negative see your doctor for irregular periods.

Coming off 1st Depo-Provera shot. Sore breasts, lower back pain, fatigue, light period. Had unprotected sex with bf couple weeks ago. Am I pregnant?

Possible: If your first shot was 6+ days after your last period & you had sexual relations within a week of getting the shot then, you may not be protected. Your periods will not completely disappear for at least 6-12 months so you may consider getting a pregnancy test done if you do not get your next expected period. Remember, the shot by itself as a contraceptive method fails 1-3% of the time.

Normal depo effect: Irregular periods are the norm on depoprovera. Many patients have no periods at all. Others will experience irregular menstrual bleeding. This is how depo works. If you are not satisfied with the bleeding pattern on depo then consider using a different birth control method.
