Maybe, maybe not: A serum pregnancy test usually tells you definitively whether or not pregnancy has occurred, but like most things in life, that's not always entirely true. Menstrual periods can be unusual coming off of DepoProvera and as the ovaries begin producing hormones again, you may experience these types of symptoms. If you are sexually active, pregnancy is always possible.
