Welcome and thanks for the query

Depo inj can cause heaviness in the breast and headaches after withdrawal.Scanty bleeding can be due to effect of depo but one should not ignore it so it is better to get blood test done for HCG levels.An implantation bleeding and an ectopic pregnancy can also give rise to scanty flow.As you are diabetic so there can be an associated factor in some females like PCOD which can give rise to scanty flow.It is very essential to differentiate all the factors for which you need investigations like an ultrasound and blood tests.
Best wishes and good luck

I'm a 42 year old female, 5'3 and 128lbs. This week my Dr.'s office told me that I need to have a B12 and iron study (my iron is low because of numerous fibroids). On March 30, 2011 I had a deprovera (spelling ?) shot to assist in lessening the bleeding for the fibroids - I've had a light menstrual cycle since April 2. Recently I've notice that my urine smells like onion, and I wanted to know possible causes? Thanks.
