No symptoms: In reality pregnancy, early on, has no physical symptoms. Second, one has significant hormonal fluctuations and 'pregnancy' symptoms are common on depo. It my be beneficial for you to go read about Depo-Provera at their website or on wikipedia if you feel like something is wrong. It would be very unusual to be pregnant on depo.

Do a pregnancy test: First check for pregnancy and if positive make an appointment with an obstetrician. If the test is negative seek evaluation with an obgyn or family practitioner to determine what is causing your symptoms.

Nothing impossible: But it's rare to get pregnant once your on depo-provera. Nothing is 100% effective but this works really well taken every 11-14 weeks without fail. Good luck.

Yes!: While the Depo-Provera shot is effective birth control, it is not 100% protective. You should be aware of this and if pregnancy is absolutely not an option, then you should consider added protection with condoms. I hope that this helps!
