I got the depo birth control shot almost 2 months ago and i'm starting 2 show what look to be reactions to the shot is it possible that my body is just now showing side effects from it?

Hi, No, side effects should


No, side effects should show up with a few days at the latest. You need to call the doctor who gave you the shot and ask him/her what is going on.

Best of Luck,
