Long period, had unprotected sex after first depo-provera injection, back pain, cramps. Normal?

Hello, I am close to my third depo-provera injection . I am full aware of how effective it is and the consequences. However, I am still worried. My current period has lasted way over a week (nearer to two) and I m still bleeding . It s not specifically light or heavy, it varies. I have had unprotected sex about four/five times since my first injection on the 31st May, this year. I have what feels like period pains almost all of the time and I m starting to feel sharp pains in my back and also on and around my right boob. My stomach will often have more pains if I lean down onto it, more than usual. I am unsure as to whether this is normal for this specific contraception . Thank you for your help.

i have understood your concern.

Please do not worry.

I will suggest you to opt for a healthy diet and regular exercise regime

For bleeding to stop use of Tab PAUSE NF 3 times a day will be of help.
Also, use Capsule of Vitamin D 3 60,000 IU once a week for 8 weeks and daily calcium supplement will be of help.

Your stomach pains and breast pains seem to be PMS - premenstrual syndrome. For that Vitamin E, B LONG F and PRIMOSA one each at night for 3 months will be of help.

I hope my answer helps you.
