Is it normal to get headaches from the shot?
updated about 3 years ago

Headaches are pretty uncommon with the shot, so you might want to look into other reasons for the aching. If the headaches are bad, definitely go see your doctor.

Still not working?

If you can’t find another reason for the headaches and want to switch methods, consider the IUD, pill, patch, or ring.

Try a different method
