It is almost time for me to get another Depo-Provera shot, and for the past 2 days or so i've had small shooting pains in my lower belly/ovary area. Why?

If you have not missed a dose of depo then you are not ovulating and your ovaries are not active.
There are many causes of lower abdominal pain from appendicitis, gas pain, constipation, ovarian cysts, bladder infections etc. I suggested scheduling to see the doc at the same time you go in for your depo shot for an exam.
