  • First of all, how long have you been on depo? If you had sex within the first MONTH after the first shot, the depo is not in your system and you will get pregnant. That being said, depo will make you think you are pregnant when you are not because it tricks your body into believing you are already pregnant. You will gain weight, gain boob size and tenderness, and you will have the odd craving.

    The only way to know is to take a test. If you can not afford one, your medicaid office will happily give you one for free.

  • It is always more likely to get pregnant when having unprotected sex. Go tell Mommy that you're a baby that might be having a baby.
