Terrible headaches, nausea after taking Next choice. Is this common?

I took Next Choice One Dose two days ago and also got the DEPO Shot a few days before that. Ever since I took Next Choice I have had a terrible headache and nausea which I know are common side effects. I m wondering if the extra hormones from the DEPO shot will make these side effects worse and/or longer? How long should I expect to have this nausea and headache for?

Thanks for the query.
As both the depo and next choice contains progesterone, there is possibility of prolonged side effects.
If you started depo during your menstrual period, it will give protection for the total month.
I that case no need to use emergency pill.
If you started depo in the middle of the month, then you may need additional protection in the first month.
Possibly the side effects may subside in 4 to 5 days.
If they persist or increase in severity consult gynecologist once.
After getting examined, you can take symptomatic treatment.
Take care.
