  • I had sore boobies on depo as well and they actually grew a whole freakin cup as well so i was constantly thinking I was pregnant because she symptoms of depo are very similar to pregnancy. But I just would buy a test to ease my mind for the moment.

    So i say buy a test to ease and clear ur mind because it really could go either way, if u were late for a shot, or have been on anti-biotics, or had sex during the first 2 weeks of the 1st shot w/o protection. those are the most riskiest times.

    trust--i went to the doctor a million times because i thought i was pregnant and they basically laid it out to me like that because I was annoyed that I was convinced that I was.

  • Oh no..I don't like hearing that!! I know you can get pregnant on any sort of birth control but...I don't want to!! LOL I got the depo shot the day after my daughter was born and that was 5 weeks ago. I've been having BAD period cramps the last few days. I'm thinking maybe I need to go another route for birth control. I really don't want to get pregnant again!! Good luck!
