i have been having several symptoms of pregnancy lately, however Im beginning to get confused.. I just recently stopped take depo provera [3 weeks ago-march 14] and have had unprotected sex several times with my husband, but i was on the shot for almost a year. i heard that its difficult to get pregnant once getting off depo for that long, however my breast have become dramatically larger and my nipples have become way darker and my veins are quite visible too now especially around my nipples. at first I thought it was a hormone change from getting off depo, but I have been extremely tired and nauseated these last few days, and its throwing my body off blsnce a bit. I get sudden headaches that last only a couple minutes and my appetite has gone way down [I only eat once a day and not very much now] ive taken a pregnancy test but it came out negative. is it too early? it was about 3 weeks ago, and would it be likely if i got off depo 3 weeks ago to become pregnant so quickly?

Birth control can cause pregnancy symptoms. However, you are saying that technically you are now off of the shot so there is definitely a chance of pregnancy. I agree with ingi; you should wait a few days and take another test.

no, my last shot was dec. 14, but i was due for my next shot on march 14, and decided not to take it [ i cant STAND the side effects of depo!] Iam just wondering if pregnancy is probable at this point, the shot does t wear off that quickly, does it? oh, and also my veins are becoming darker all over my body, is that a bad thing? I noticed it today, my veins in my arms and legs are darker all over

Weird Symptoms after deprovera
I am due for my next shot right now but for the past week, i have felt very pregnant. Took a preg test yesterday, its negative. I had a breast augmentation after my second child 2yrs ago and my breasts hurt sooooo bad, super heavy. I have had neausea,feeling very weak,headaches, weird on and off periods. I dont plan on getting back on the shot since I want to have a third baby. Ive been reading and it sounds like its very normal to have all these symptoms. Im just so damn miserable...i hope these symptoms go away soon.

Hi everyone, I was due my Depo shot on 4th Feb, but husband and I are keen to have children so havent had it. Since then I have had many pregnancy symptoms - I have been bloated, sickness, very sore and bigger boobs (I have never suffered with tender boobs before with periods etc) I also suffered with heartburn, which again I've never suffered with, wind or trapped wind and I'm constantly exhausted.....everything points to pregnancy, but I've taken two tests now and they were both negative....Surprised( It must just be my body adjusting to Depo not being in my system - oh and no sign of period! Hope it doesnt take too long.....now we're trying you just want to fall straight away.....just hope we do quite quickly!! Would be interested to hear how long it took people to become pregnant after coming off the depo x

Those are the symptoms I had when I got off the shot . Your not pregnant. Its just your body getting used to not having the shot .. it will go away! And those pounds are from the shot they made me gain like 25. Your okay (:

I took depo before getting pregnant with my second child. My last shot was mid May 2010 so that covered me until the August and I fell pregnat early October 2010 so it happened very quickly for me. I now have two gorgeous little girls. I'm back on depo again, only had one shot so far, and this time round side effects are horrendous much worse than last time. I have constant back ache, abdominal pain, migraines, dizziness, nausea, constant bleeding, feeling down, tired, moody, loss of sex drive and weight gain. Would not advise anyone to have it! Come off it let nature take its course then find a different method of contraception next time I'm not having depo ever again. Good luck x

I had the depo in may, aug and nov 2009.I did no go back in Jan 2010 as we are trying for baby no.2. I am only 25 so i thought as soon as i was due for my next shot i would be able to fall pregnant within a month of not taking it. However I have had pregnancy symptoms, then i get spotting for half a day hen i am fine for a week i get excited abou doing an ovulaion test then i get spoting. I am so damn frustraed because i was never warned about the after effects of depo. I just want to fall pregnant and now i never know if i am coming or going how long does this crap take to get out of your system!!I should be at my mst fertile at 25!!!

I have been on the Depo shot since Jan2009. My shot is due today April2010. I had unprotected sex with my partner last month on the 13th&14th, and then on the 20th&21st. Then I bled on the 22nd skipped the 23rd and bled on the 24th. Now I am having pregnancy symptoms. Im feeling very tired all the time, I sometimes have to throw up when I smell certain things (sometimes even when I dont smell things). My veins in my breasts are now becoming visible (especially around the nipple) and Im constantly having cramps in my lower and upper abdomen. Is there a chance that I could be pregnant?

Well it seems like I had taken the depo vera the longest. I was on the depo for 5 yrs right after I had my son. my baby is 7 now and I have been off the shot for 2yrs. Since then I was having a normal period the first yr but this last yr my period has been every where. I would miss one month then come on miss 2 months and come on again. My last period was jan 09 2010. It was a normal period it last 5 days. Since then I have not had another. I am tryin to get pregnant and I just don't no how to get my body regulated. Do anyone have any advice??
