Depo has tons of side effects, and almost all of them are also symptoms of pregnancy. 70% of women using Depo Provera gain weight. Almost half of the women using Depo Provera gain more than 5 pounds after one year of use. Many women gain more than 10 pounds. This is because it affects your appetite Other side effects of Depo Provera can include headaches, nervousness, dizziness, mood changes, bloating, nausea, hot flashes, decreased interest in sex, breast tenderness, acne, hair loss, and back ache. You should contact your doctor if any of your symptoms are severe, as they could be a sign of a serious problem.

You should take another pregnancy test, just to make sure. Chances are you are just experiencing the majority of the side effects, though.

I had the same problem when I was on Depo. I gained weight like crazy, was in a constant state of PMS, and was miserable. You should know that Depo Provera is associated with a loss of bone density resulting in an increased risk of osteoporosis. The bone loss appears not to be reversed when the woman goes off Depo Provera. Depo is not recommended for long term use and especially not recommended when the young woman is still growing her bones.

Just consider all of this before getting your next shot. There is no point in being miserable when there are so many birth control options available.
