Why am I getting sick?

Patient : I have a 5 month old child, am on the depo provera shot and I've been throwing up recently and can't find a reason why. Is my child carrying something to make me sick?
Symptoms:  Naseau, throwing up
Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. Depo provera sometimes can lead to side effects like nausea, v omiting etc. Other possible causes are gastric disturbances causing nausea etc. Baby may not be responsible for your problem. Antacids and antiemetic tablets can decrease vomitings. If these tablets do not work, better to consult your doctor once and get examined. Take care.
