  • The Depo shot does make you gain water weight.

  • It could be side-effects from the depo.

  • All of those symptoms can be caused by the hormonal changes in your body due to Depo. But, you're right to test to be on the safe side. There have been some women who have gotten pregnant on Depo. It's rare, but does happen.

  • I was on the depo shot for a few yrs, and if u started getting these symptoms that quick I would go and get a pregnacy test ASAFP. They are not that expensive. Is this the first time u have had the shot? Didn't your dr give u a pregnancy test before they gave u a shot?

  • it might just be the weight from the shot !
    everyone should read this : if you are on the depo shot then you should take calcium pills too cause after being on the depo shot for a while it deterierates your bones. just a little advice.

  • The shot, or any hormonal birth control, makes your body think it is pregnant. So, of course, your gonna feel like you are pregnant.

  • Those could very well be from the shot. I didn't get pg on depo, but I did get pg 6 months after my last shot, even though the doc told me it would take 18 months to work its way out of my system.
