How does someone know if they are pregnant while on Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)? Are the symptoms different?

In brief: Take a test
To find out if you are pregnant on Depo-Provera provera, (medroxyprogesterone) take an at home pregnancy test.
Many women on Depo-Provera do not have regular periods so missing your period is not a good marker of pregnancy. You may have breast tenderness, nausea, and fatigue. These are all signs of an early pregnancy that may be the same on depo.
