Hello,
Depo vera injections keeps the ovaries in a dormant stage for 3 months so there is no ovulation taking place. The chances of pregnancy are very less. This method is almost 99.7% effective.Depo vera may cause menstrual irregularities and at times may stop it completely. Weight gain is common on depo so watch your diet and start exercising. Take up urine pregnancy test to clarify your doubt. I hope it helps.
Take care and regards!
