I was on depo 3 years. Stopped 2 years ago. Me and my Husband have unprotected sex often for the past 5 months. Just got my period on my normal date but i have constant headaches and "feel" sick. I havent acutally gotten sick just feel it in my stocmach the past few days since ive been on my period,and sweet smells make the "sick" feeling worse and my boobs hurt pretty bad about 3 days before i got my period. My period is normal though...could i be pregnant? Like i said im on my period now but feel sick and headaches and a little more tired and neck pains started last night.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you had normal periods then probably the headache and nausea is not due to pregnancy. However since some women get one or two normal periods and are yet pregnant, take a pregnancy test and see. Since you have neck pain, headache and nausea chances of a nerve compression in the cervical spine region is more likely. Get a doctor to check this. You may need a MRI and a neurology consult. Hope this helps. Take care!
