I had a tubal ligation in "04 and in march I took one dose of depro prevera shot to help with cysts, and since then I haven't had a real period and I have been spotting at least every other day if not every day. I have gained weight about 10-15 pounds but only in my belly, and last night while in the shower I noticed milk seeping out of my boobs, should I be worried about being pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on pregnancy status without examining you. Chances of contraceptive failure cannot be ruled out completely. There are chances of spontaneous recanalization of tubes also after few years. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
