Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

There are a serveral side effects for the Depo Provera birth control shot but severe arm and abdominal pain are not included in the list.

The side effects can include:

  • Irregular menstrual periods, or no periods at all
  • Headaches
  • Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Changes in appetite
  • Weight gain
  • Unwanted facial and body hair

I would go get checked out by a medical professional.


Here is some additional information.  Side Effects of Dep Provera

Be well,
