Depo: Depo is quite effective for birth control. Since you did not use condoms the likelihood of a sexually transmitted disease is high. If you are speaking about having cultures done for the wide variety of STDs that you could have contracted then I would recommend going immediately for testing. If you are speaking of a pregnancy test I would recommend it is not necessary.

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.

Not likely: Pregnancy is unlikely, but run a pregnancy test for your "peace of mind."
