Post Birth Control Question...

I asked this on the other board...but it went unanswered so I thought I would post it here...!

ANyone else get really nausous on Depo Provera? I got my second shot yesterday....and im still feelin sick alllllllll the time. Its been like this for 3 weeks now....did anyone else have this sick feeling all the time on this form of birth control. i asked the nurse yesterday and she just said it was a side effect and it was my choice if i wanted the second shot...and it should go away over time.....just curious if anyone else put up with this.

Depo can cause lots of nasty side effects that can linger for a longggggggggggggggggggggg time after you quit taking the shot. Many women are so sick on the shot that they wimd up needing tons of tests trying to find out what is wrong and everything comes up negative but once they quit the shot and the body finally gets it out of the system all of the problems go away. Do a search here for Depo and read about it.

Yes, feeling sick to your stomach is a side effect from ANY form of birth control, not just depo. It should go away though. By the time you are in need of your next shot you shouldn't be experiencing this anymore. If you are, i'd consider trying a different form of birth control.
