Nur-isterate side-effects or preg?..!!!

Hi doc,

I had my first 2 month injection a month ago after stopping the pill and a week ago till the other day my stomach felt very uncomfortable. I was very stressed as I hadnt ever felt that strange so i thought i might be pregnant. I was 3 days late which wasnt too serious as my patterns arent very regular, and finally came on yesterday. But it was just a little and now it seems to have stopped. I know the injection does cause your periods to eventually stop, but its supposed to stop within the first 6 months, not the first month. Is it commom to have changes so early and was my uncomfortable stomach also normal for the injection?

Thanks for all your help

The discomfort could be a side effect of the injection and periods can stop as soon as you start the injection.

Side effects of using nur-isterate

Posted by: Anonymous | 2014/10/27

I've been on Nur-Isterate for almost 9 years and had my last injection in Jan 2014. I want to know how long it would normally take for my hormones and body to stabilize, and what side-effects I can expect?

I used nur-isterate about 4 years and I stopped using it early january 2011. I've been having unprotected sex since I stopped using injection, but till now I don't conceive and I'm experiencing strange symptoms, stomach cramps, backaches, sore nipples n headache. Could it be a womb problem? Could I be worried?
