Had depo shot. Having nausea, intermittent stomachaches, dizziness. Side effects of depo shot?

Hi, I ve been on the Depo shot for about 3 years now. I just had mine recently about a month ago. I haven t had many side effects when I got the shot. But this week I noticed some strange effects happening to me. I ve been feeling like throwing up and I have pains in my stomach that come and go. Today I got up from sitting down and got really dizzy and felt like fainting . I almost went over backwards. I know for a fact I am not pregnant. I don t know what else could it be except side effects from the Depo. What do you think could possible make me feel like that?

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you are taking progesterone depot injection for the contraception..
progesterone causes the retension and fluid and causes the symptoms..
it is common to have mood swings, nausea, dizziness with this hormones..
take some antacids like proton pump inhibitors, and do regular exercises like yoga meditation, which helps in reduction of the symptoms..
all the very best..
