Well, Me and my boyfriend have been together for over a year. we have had sex and everything. first i was on the pill but i kept forgetting to take it so i switched to the Depo Shot. ive been on it for 6months and i go back to get it sometime in Jan. Ive been having pregnancy symptoms for about 2-3 months and its really making me nervous. About 2 months ago i wasnt feeling very well so i went to sleep around 11, woke up at 4 in the morning and was still feeling sick so i layed there for 10 mins, then i went to the bathroom and threw up. I was nausious for about a month straight, all day every day and during that month i ate A TON & i was really tired alot. Then a couple days before the month ended i was feeling better. THen the next month, the same thing happened, i was feeling sick so i went to sleep early and woke up at 4:10 in the morning, sat there for a min, then went to the bathroom and threw up. I have gained about 7 pounds, and now i think/feel like im losing weight. I havent had much of an appetite this month and its weird. My stomach feels bloated, and when i lay down my stomach makes a growling/gargle`ing noise but im not hungry? sometimes it feels like little bubbles are popping and sometimes it feels like just one big bubble pops. On my breasts, on the outside [by my armpits] veins are sticking out.. also on the bottom and top, but not as much on the inside[the middle of my chest].. My stomach always cramps also and it feels like someone is stabbing me kind've. Ive also been getting acne, and i NEVER get acne. I took 2 home pregnancy tests and tehy both said negative but they were the cheap ones. Also for about a month ina half ive been spotting/pretty much on my period, it is sometimes red,dark dark brown/almost black, and sometimes dark brown with a red tint. Could i be pregnant or could all of this be from the Depo Provera Shot? PLEASE HELP!

I FEEL THE SAME WAY TO WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THROWING UP. I'VE BEEN ON THE SHOT ONLY SINCE NOVEMBER OF 07. I ALSO HAVE THE DARK BROWN SPOTS WITH RED TINT SOMETIMES. I FEEL BLOATED ALOT AND NAUSEATED MOST OF THE TIMES. I DO THINK I'M PREGNANT BUT I'M NOT SURE & I HOPE NOT SO I CAN'T GIVE YOU HELP BECAUSE WE BOTH NEED HELP BUT I PRAY FOR THE BEST RESULTS FOR THE BOTH OF US.

I believe that you are dealing with some side - effects that Depo is causing you. Sure, there is always a chance that you ask yourself could I be pregnant, even if you are using something like Depo.

Anyway, to be sure, do the pregnancy test. To be eve more sure, do the blood test. 

Some of those symptoms that you are having can be a result of side - effects, but it can also be pregnancy. I believe that I was reading that there are 1% chances, but who knows - maybe you are in that 1%. Maybe I am too. That is a life.

This is quite wierd. I too have the same symptoms as you both do. i have been nauseated but havent yet thrown up. my stomach is bloated all the time and i am having the same spotting problem. Maybe it is a side effect of the depo but im not so sure. i have looked up online to see if there is any help but it seems that all there are are these blogs. Home pregnancy tests arent as effective as adoctors test so i would advise going and getting checked. i see now that this was posted a while ago if you found out if you are pregnant plaese contact me. i would love to know as i am worried myself. thanks so much

Im nervous as well because, I know that if you get pregnant while on depo that you could have a premature baby. But I have been on depo for almost a year now. Its almost time for me to get my shot again, but Im bleeding very very heavy and I am having bad cramps. I feel like someone is stabbing me as well. I sometimes even have blood clots. Im very scared because I have took test the last time I had these syptoms and I wasnt pregnant but is it possible that we could really be pregnant?

I took the depo shot about a month ago. (two months after my daughter was stillborn). Im starting to have almost every symptom of pregnancy. Mood swings and all. Has anybody found out if they are pregnant? this morning sickness is killing me. Ive taken 2 pregnancy tests and they have both been neg but my stomach is starting to get hard and i think even poke out a little bit. Has anybody ever gotten pregnant on this thing?

i am having the same problem after talking to my doctor he told me that with some people the shot makes your body think you are pregnant... that is what had happened to me.. the weight gain, tenderness, sickness, back aches, the works. so ask your doc

I've been on the Depo shot for only 4 and a half months. I had spotting that would last a couple of days that was a rusty color. But the past 8 or nine days I have had a very light amount of blood ranging from light red to the same rusty color. Is it normal to have the discharge last this long at a continuous rate? Or is it possible that I may be pregnant or that I have had a miscarriage?

I've been on the shot since July 08 and its about 2 weeks till I can get my next shot and the last month I've been feeling sick and moody and my period has gotten so bad...I was only put on the shot because I got such bad periods and cramps, and I haven't once spotted or anything untill now...and all of a sudden when I first started getting sick all the signs of being pregnant came as well....everyone keeps asking me if I'm pregnant...and I'm really worried. I haven't taken a test or anything yet..it really helps knowing I'm really not the only one =]

>:( hi i just started reading this site.but i've been on depo now for 11 years and to tell the truth i've loved it. only because no period. But for the last 3 months i've felt like i have been having the same symptoms as the rest of you. but of course my doctor said it was normal. but i would really like to talk to the lady who goes by the name lawyergirl if possible. out of all the stories i've read you seem to be on the shot as long as i have.
