Pregnant on Depo?

Has it happened to you or do you know anyone who has gotten pregnant while on the Depo shot?

I have been on it for about 6 months now and I know it's reliable but I can't stop worrying that it will fail because I have gotten pregnant on bc twice and I do not want anymore kids right now, if ever. And I have been really nervous the last few days because I have been having all these symptoms that I usually get at the beginning of a pregnancy..... but I'm sure I'm not pregnant, it has just made me think about it and worry more! I guess I don't really trust any bc anymore. I just found out that my thyroid is messed up so I'm pretty sure that most of it is because of my thyroid.

I've been on Depo for almost 7 years now. I get random feelings like I'm pregnant, but I've always tested negative. I don't even buy a test anymore if I'm scared. I just wait til I go to the dr to test.

I got pregnant on depo not once, but TWICE...my son, and one I miscarried. After that I also got pregnant with my youngest while on the pill. It has since been determined that hormonal birth control has no effect on my body. I got my tubes tied after my youngest.
