Hi!
IF you were my patient, I would advise you that your symptoms probably ARE related to stopping the Depo recently.  Certainly irregular bleeding is common.  Also, the Depo suppresses hormone levels, and many women feel breast tenderness and even pregnancy-like symptoms when their hormones are starting to head back to normal.
Good luck!
