How Can Depo Shots Affect Bowel Movements While Experiencing Dry Flaky Skin And Redness Around The Eyes?

It probably isn t related, but my 14 year old daughter has had severe constipation (1 bowel mvmnt every 1-2 weeks, without laxative) since she received her first depo shot about 3 months ago. She does not hold in bowel movements and drinks about 48-60 oz of water a day. She also has dry flaky skin around her eyes along with red-purple around eyes, with a swollen patch on the right eyelid. She is very tired but has a regular sleep pattern of about 8 hours a night.
