So i got the depo shot,and ive been having spotting,as said would happen,but im also getting bad stomach pains with it,and the color of blood isnt really the same as always,not to get too personal,just worried! But should i be? (Im new to this whole birth control thing so i dont exactly know how to react to these things)
Hey liddyandpoppy. You should be fine. Its normal to have spotting & cramps @ 1st. Just keep an eye on it. If the pain get worse or doesn't stop in the next few days call your dr. If your spotting blood is purplish or turns purple in color call 911 for help as it could indicate a serious internal problem. Ok take care.
