I just got my first Depo shot 2 days ago and I just today started to experience moderate to strong uterine cramps and pain that feels like it is in my ovaries. Wondering if this is normal because I see stomach pain as a normal side effect. Side note, I did experience a natural miscarriage about 8 days ago and had no complication. Could this pain be from the shot alone or in conjunction to the cramps experienced from the miscarriage?

Hello arhs and welcome to DC. As this isn't one of the more normal side effects due to your recent miscarriage, I would contact your ob/gyn. Having a miscarriage can cause severe cramping for many days or a couple of weeks (as was my case) if the person is unaware of what is happening. Did you also have a D&C following this most unfortunate event? That was necessary for me...
My condolences to you for your loss... and again, I would contact your doctor and relay your symptoms to be on the safe side.
