Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone): What does it mean by incorrectly injecting depo-provera? It's an intramuscular injection so i would think if it is injected in the muscle, it should work just fine.

You are not pregnant: These symptoms are from the depo. This is what it feels like to be on Depo-Provera early on. You are not pregnant.
