Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hormonal contraceptives do not affect the urine pregnancy test results. If you have had a positive pregnancy test, it could suggest that you are pregnant as indicated by your recent symptoms (abdominal movements, increased appetite, weight gain, headaches, nausea, low back pain, darker nipples, stretch marks over breasts). Few symptoms can also be attributed to hormonal content of the Depo shot. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, 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. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
