Is nausea and headaches a side effect of getting off depo?

Not really: Getting off depo should not be accompanied by nausea/headaches normally. You may have headaches while on it, though.

I have had a severe headache for over 72hrs along with occasional nausea. Could it be a side effect of my Depo-Provera shot? I got my 2nd shot on the 8th.

I have had a severe headache for over 72hrs along with occasional nausea. Could it be a side effect of my Depo-Provera shot? I got my 2nd shot on the 8th.

You should take a pregnancy test if your are no longer on birth control. ...Read more

Yes and no: Spotting and headaches can occur. You should first rule out pregnancy. If your pregnancy test is positive, seek medical attention immediately as you could have an ectopic pregnancy. If your test is negative, schedule an appointment with your gynecologist. You should be evaluated for other possible causes such as ovarian cyst or pelvic infection. ...Read more
