In brief: Pregnancy unlikely

Depotprovera is among the most effective birth control methods.
However, it occasionally comes with side effects, some of which you are unfortunately experiencing: the mood swings and the nausea and bloating, sometimes women complain of hair loss and extreme weight gain (30 kg +). The only remedy is to stop the depotprovera.

In brief: Unlikely

You may have side effects from the medication, or an unrelated illness, but it's very unlike that you would ovulate if properly dosed with depo-provera.
