I have been on Depo Provera for 4 years all the while with the same partner. I know side effects can be similar to pregnancy to symptoms. I have not had a regular period in 3 years. Are the symptoms altered and different if I've managed to become pregnant while on the shot? I can't purchase a pregnancy test at the moment, I get paid next week. But I was looking for some peace of mind. I noticed today that I have bloated stomach and it looks like a baby bump. I've gained weight in the last two year, but this is looks like a bump. I have had some stomach pain, but nothing much else. Since I don't have a period I am terrifed of being one of those "I didn't know I was pregnant" girls. Maybe this is fear overriding sense, but I am simply wondering. I have no other children and have not had any pregnancies. I know every woman is effected by early pregnancy differently. Has anyone experienced becoming pregnant on Depo Provera? I have not missed any shots. Thank you.

concerned about being pregnant on Depo provera
I would say make an appointment with a doctor and They have the equipment to see if there is a heart beat or not seeing as pregnancy test do not work when you are on Depo provera.If it is something you are truly worried about then that would be the best solution

I have been on the depo for about 2 years now with no negative side effects. For the past two weeks i have been feeling bloated with tender breasts and menstrual-like cramps. I took 7 HPT's - all with negative results. I went to the doctor yesterday and had a blood test - also negative. I think after being on the shot for a while (or a short time, as it is different for everyone) your body begins to react to the hormones that are generally not in your system. Take a deep breath and schedule an appointment with your doctor. It is possible for your mind to trick your body. That's what happened to me. Now that i'm 100% sure i'm not pregnant, i haven't had any of the symptons listed above.

Pregnancy while on Depo?
I'm 18 and I've been on the depo for about 9 months and i waited until the VERY last day i could on a shot and had started bleeding like i was on my period, i have not bleed at all the entire time i've been on it, but recently i spotted a little a couple weeks, i've been getting bloated, stomach toughens up at random times and is typically kind of tough, i've been feeling sick to my stomach and it seems as if i cant get enough sleep as of lately, my boyfriend and i have had unprotected sex everytime and he has ejaculated inside, i'm beginning to worry i am pregnant, the symptoms arent fading and the past couple weeks i have begun to get headaches and i have never in my life got headaches this much.
