Upper abdominal pain before PMS

I am having really bad upper abdominal pain. The pain is mainly in the middle and sometimes travel through right and left side of my stomach. I have been having this pain since monday and my period started on wednesday. I am having heavy periods on time and this is my 2nd cycle after stopping depo. I never experienced upper abdominal pain during PMS. I am healthy and eat healthy foods too

HI and thanks for using the forum.

Generally speaking, abdominal pain lasting more than a few hours should be evaluated by a doctor.  Usually, cramping or pain related to your period, is located in your lower abdomen.  It is not uncommon to have heavy periods after stopping depo, nor is it uncommon to have painful periods after stopping depo.  You will probably need to see your doctor to find out if these pains are related to your period or not.  I suggest that you schedule an appointment with your doctor to make sure that there is nothing else going on (such as GERD).  IF the pain becomes much worse, or if you develop nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea then see your doctor sooner.  Good luck.
