POTSdad Posted February 14, 2011 Report Share Posted February 14, 2011 Has anyone else had severe symptoms after their first Depo Provera injection?Our 18 year old daughter just got her first Depo Provera shot 2 weeks ago, just 4 days after her period began (optimal timing). Usually she would begin feeling better a few days after her period is over, however the last 2 weeks she has felt far worse with severe pain, POTS symptoms, and other unusual symptoms. Has anyone else seen this??Two days after her first Depo shot, it looked like her skin was bruised in her low back, abdomen, and the upper part of her inner thighs. We were quite alarmed, and called the family doctor, who thought it was not necessary to bring her to the hospital. We still don't know what caused the bruising. It has slowly faded the last 2 weeks.A few days later her heart was racing so fast, she felt like she was dying. Her POTS symptoms haven't been that severe in a long time. Usually the POTS symptoms are well controlled at this time of the month using Florinef.Yesterday she said it felt like someone had punched her in the abdomen. The pain was excruciating. Again this is not the time of the month she normally experiences PMS pain (2 weeks into her cycle).I'm speculating that perhaps the bruising and on-going pain could be related to Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS). I read somewhere that pelvic blood vessels can burst sometimes with PCS. Next week my daughter is getting a Pelvic MRI Peripheral Angiography which will map out the veins in the pelvic area. During the preliminary consultation, the radiologist thought there was a 50/50 chance she has PCS. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
