I recently had a miscarriage and only waited a week to have sex now I have nausea vomiting and also smells are making me sick what's wrong with me?

Hormones dropping: It takes some time after a miscarriage for the HCG levels to drop, so you may still experience some pregnancy symptoms. You need to give your body time to heal, though. I usually recommended avoiding pregnancy until you have 2 normal periods. Use condoms and spermicide or abstinence until then. ...Read more

Are your bowel movements normal? How long has it been going on? Any nausea? Does eating make it feel better? The "differential" for abdominal pain is so big that you really deserve a thorough history and exam to get to the bottom of it. ...Read more

Tubes tied 3/4/11.on depo, bc my periods are horrible. Got shot 2wks ago. Past 3days, nausea, spotting, severe cramps, sensitive 2 smells. Could I be preg?

See Dr. Again: Hi StephanieL,
Unlikely that you are pregnant. Did you get a pregnancy test after tubes tied prior to the Depo shot?
More likely you are experiencing side effect of progesterone in the Depo shot.
To calm you nerves pick up preg test at drugstore or get a lab test.
The Depo does cause spotting and menstral changes until you get used to it.
See your doctor again for reassurance
