Okay,well, I had recently started depoo not neccessarily as birth control but to regulate my period. My first shot was in early december and I was due early march. I never went back for my next shot but my "Period" has seemed wierd. Normally I have a very heavy cycle and right now it has been very light and the color went from a light pink to brown. When i would noramlly be using a pad and a tmpon at the same time, im only using a pantyliner. My breasts are very sore and Ive been real achy and moody. Do you think I could be pregnant?

Well it could be sign of being  pregnant. I was on the Depo shot but i had a bad reaction so i had to be taking off of it. If you miss one shot as soon as you go to the doctor they make you take a pregnacy test because its really easy to get pergnant if you miss a shot. Different people have different reactions to the shot.

that is very rare that after you missed the depo shot you are having signs of being pregnant because i know for a fact it can take up to a year for your hormones to regulate.
go see your gyn

I was on the depo shot for 3 yrs, Doctor's told me that it would take me 6 months to a year to get pregnant. I got pregnant 3 Months after being off the shot. So you might want to go get checked out.

...when i first got pregnant...i found that i had cloudy pee...i thought i was crazy till i talked to other friends, and they said the same...it may be from something else, but i found the whole time i was pregnant i had cloudy pee....nothing else like morning sickmess untill i was about 2 months...and even then it didn't feel like morning sickness, i just couldn't eat breakfast...i was on the shot for 2 years, and i was off the shot for about 1 year before i got pregnant...my periods didn't ever resume before that...i got one REALLY light before i was actually preggers...and yes, i agree that it can take up to a year, hell it did with me, but every woman's different, right?? maybe you just have a really fertile body, lol...you could also just be stressing yourself out...

I was on the depo shot for about a year and was supose to get my last shot around September, but i didnt get it. my period came back almost right away and it seemed pretty normal, then i started getting it every 5 days or so but it was lighter. By boobs were super sore and they have deffinitly gotten bigger., my lower stomach area seems to be a little bigger too(but that very well could just be the weight gain from being on the depo) but i have sharp pains and aches in my lower stomach. im tired alot, and some smells make me nauseous. Its been about a month now, and I'm still getting my period 2-3 times a month but the other symptoms havent gone away. is there a chance im pregnant??
