Hi! Thanks for your query on eHealth Forum!

In all probability, the periods are either delayed or have stopped due to depot shot. This can also cause bloating. If you have missed the next dose of your depot shot, then you can be pregnant as well. Please take a good home pregnancy test or blood test for pregnancy. If it is negative, take an antacid. This will help with bloating and reduce pain too. Also, increase fibers in diet. Drink plenty of water. Hope this helps! Take care!
