Possibly: Pregnancy is a posibility. Purchase and perform a home pregnancy test. It should turn positive by the time you're a week late. If it's negative, repeat it in 1 week.

Possibly: You were ovulating when you received the depoprovera. If you had sex then, it may be possible you are pregnant. The symptoms could also be from the depo. Check a home pregnancy test. Repeat in 7-10 days if it is negative.
