If : If you are on the Depo-Provera shot and you are not yet due for your next one, then you are still protected against pregnancy 99% of the time. It is more likely that you have a bladder infection or another more common problem. You should see your doctor for your symptoms. You may also want to discuss other birth control options besides the Depo-Provera shot since you did not like the side effects you experienced. Good luck!
