In brief: You

You are most likely not pregnant since you took the morning after pill within 24 hours of having sex making it more than 85% effective.
Going off Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) and taking the morning after pill can both cause abnormal spotting and an irregular menstrual cycle. If you have any concerns about being pregnant, you may want to take a pregnancy test next month just to be certain. In the meantime, you may want to talk to your doctor to discuss alternative forms of birth control. Good luck!
