Alrighty, so i had sex with my boyfriend of almost 5 months, and it was protected, meaning i had used a condom, 2 of the 4 times i did it was with also spermicide, and i am currently on the depo shot (3 1/2 months) and last week was my first time. See, i have been having gassy/upset stomach stuff and had a little tough time going number 2. Its getting a little better, but i want to be sure. I would like to know what to do with the gassy/upset stomach (potty thing). Also, since im on the shot, it is hard to keep track of my period because i usually just spot. 3/4 times we did it i bled a little, first time was a bit more. It didn't hurt though. But, i was told eventually i may not have much of any period because of the shot. Please help, we were fully protected! I just really would like these questions of mine answered! :/ thanks

Hi kyky,

You will need to see a doctor, since you continue spotting.

Hi kyky,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  For most women, It takes about three months for your body to adjust to Depo Provera. As your body is adjusting to Depo Provera, it is likely that you will experience irregular bleeding (spotting).  Also, the gassy/upset stomach might be due to the Shot.  But, it's important to discuss with your doctor your symptoms, so he can prescribe the right medication.
