I started the depo shot in january 2010 and was due to second shot in April but didnt get it. Ive been having unprotected sex with my husband and now Im feeling a little nausea, my tummy feels crampy and tight, breast are tender and sore, increase of sleepiness and minor lower. Is that pregancy syptoms or signs of my cycle returning?

I got my second round of Depo about a month and some change ago then our condom broke and semen got inside. I haven't had my period since before the second shot. Should I take a test?

Hello Anonymous,

You should have been protected from becoming pregnant with a second Depo-Provera injection.

Speak with your gynecologist about not getting a period yet.

We don't know if you're pregnant but it's possible to get pregnant, yes.

I had my first shot Oct 31 and was due back Jan 17. My cycle never stopped it became irregular and I spotting for most of it. I plan to switch to the pill but I missed my appointment and I had unprotected sex Jan 15 and Jan 23. I spotted Jan 21 for one day only. I feel nauseated with mild cramps. Could I be pregnant or the shot is wearing off and these are just symptoms?

Hello Anon

Pregnancy is not likely but it's possible. You will need to take a test to know more.

Hi Anon

It can take weeks to months for a cycle to get back to normal after Depo and spotting is common. You can test for pregnancy if you don't get your period in the next few weeks.

Good luck!
