I do understand your concern. Since you've had no problems with the injections for 2 years, I do not think that your period pain could be due to the injectable contraceptive. Though irregular periods, bleeding and abdominal pain is a side effect of injectable contraceptives, it is usually seen during the early usage period. I would suggest that you see you gynecologist to rule out other causes such as a pelvic inflammatory disease or fibroids.
