Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your normal fertility can return back in about a month’s time after you miss your Depo shot. The symptoms of nausea, tiredness, cramps, spotting could be suggestive of pregnancy. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for examination and blood test to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
