I've been on depo for about two years now For

Patient

Q: I've been on depo for about two years now. For about a week I have been feeling kicking in my lower abdomen. Is it possible I could be pregnant. I've taken a test but it was negative

Symptoms:  Heartburn, bloating, cramps, kicking in abdomen
Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We understand your concern.

Kicking is not a symptom of early pregnancy. However, if you have missed your periods you may take a urine pregnancy test done at home.
Such pain in lower abdomen can be due to any of the following reasons:
1. Acid reflux- However, it is mostly in upper abdomen but gas formation can lead to pain any where in the abdomen.
2. Stone in the renal tract- Mostly presents with such kind of pain which radiated to urinary tract and also painful micturation is there.
3. Colitis- mostly accompanied by loose motions and blood in stools.
In such scenario, you should see your doctor and get an Ultrasound abdomen done to rule out stones and other possibilities. Till you get the Ultrasound done, you can take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone for Acid Reflux. For relief from pain you can take Tab Drotaverine.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy
