Hmm its common you dnt get your period on the depo provera  because somee might experience spotting or light period or no period at all ...you will be fine dont be scared and pain may be just from the sex not the shot..is this your first time using depo?

Whether you can have pregnancy or not depends on when did you start the depo shots. The first injection should be given in the first five days of a normal menstrual cycle (day one is the first day of your period). This will protect you from pregnancy immediately. But if you start on some other day, you will need to use additional contraception, eg condoms for the first seven days after having the injection. If you do not use any additional contraception then you may get pregnant.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
