Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A41872
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your Depo shot has expired, chances of pregnancy are possible. Many women experience heavy bleeding after getting the shot that subsides within 2-3 months time. Women have also reported getting pregnant while being on the shot. The symptoms that you describe (nausea, breast discomfort & swelling, abdominal discomfort/distention) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If the symptoms remain persistent, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
