Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Chances of pregnancy are less while on a depot shot. Take a pregnancy test for confirmation, a blood pregnancy test is more confirmatory. Food craving can also be due to acidity which many women on depot shots face.

If test is negative do the following and see: Take a late night snack. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Consult a doctor if this does not help. Take care!
