Is it normal to have bloated stomach after depo shot?

I only received 1 depo shot when my son was born in april of 2013. I have not went to get the depo shot since. It s been 1 and 1/2 months since I ve been off the shot and I feel like my stomach is so bloated if it grows anymore it s going to pop. Is that normal?

Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to side effects of depo shot. I suggest you use simethicone medication three tablets a day to relieve the bloating. I also suggest to drink liquids and avoid medication that can trigger the symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
