Doctor to evaluate: A return visit to the ob-gyn doctor can help figure out the pregnancy symptoms. The doctor can do a pregnancy test to verify non-pregnancy.

What are signs of pregnancy when you're on the Depo-Provera shot? Are they different from normal signs?

Yes: Since skipping periods is normal on Depo provera it is not necessarily a sign of pregnancy. Weight gain is also common with Depo and not necessarily associated with pregnancy.

While it is very uncommon to conceive on Depo, all methods do have failures. ...Read more

Depo Provera: Chances are that, if you have received the Depo Provera on time, you are not pregnant. However, no birth control is perfect. You should check a pregnancy test if you are suspicious.

It should get better over time. ...Read more

I'm having signs if pregnancy but I am on Depo-Provera  .. Can this be right?  Can I be pregnant?

Not likely pregnant: Hello Heather, If you are on Depo-Provera or 'the shot', then you are feeling the effects of Progesterone. This is the same hormone that is produced by the ovaries after ovulation. So, to have similar symptoms is altogether normal and explainable. Do not worry, Depo-provera is 99+% effective in preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

Possibly: If you have had your shot on time the risk of pregnancy is low. Some women will get symptoms similar to pregnancy from the hormones in the shot. But if you are concerned it is quick and easy to do an over the counter pregnancy test. ...Read more
