Hi, new to the forum and tried searching through posts but couldn't find what I was after (which is the problem I am having with Google in general).
I had 4 shots of Depo Provera over the course of last year. My husband and I have been unsure about having another baby so thought why not give my body a rest and we will discuss it further once my period comes back. Except my body isn't really resting at all.
I was supposed to have my next shot at the beginning of January but skipped it. For the last few weeks I have been nauseous. It is an all day thing, but varies between just a slight twinge to full blown burying my head in a pillow to stop the whole world spinning. Been going on for about 3 weeks now.
I have also had cramping. Lower abdomen, so similar to period cramps. Again varying from a dull ache to (not too often thankfully) bent over in pain.
Earlier in the week (here's the TMI part) I had a fair bit of discharge. It was for two days, he no substantial structure to it. It was slightly thicker than water but still very fluidy. And enough of it that, coupled with the cramps, I kept going to the bathroom thinking I was leaking blood.
My appetite has gone a bit off, a tendancy to snacking increased but not eating as much at dinner (likely from the nausea I suppose).
Has anyone felt this when coming off depo? It's the first birth control I have used. Apart from 2x 3 week long bleeds after my first shot, and one very period like bleed (red and brown blood though) about 2 weeks before my last shot was due, I had no bleeding while on it. I also he no adverse affects going onto it. That's why this confuses me now I suppose. I would love to hear other people's experiences before trekking up to the doctor and potentially wasting their time. 3+ weeks and nausea and cramps is getting a tad frustrating haha. (Apologies for the giant post) Please someone help?!
