If you think you are pregnant, take a sensitive pregnancy test using a first morning urine.  Unfortunately, it sometimes takes months for your period to return after depo.

If you are sexually active, you should take a pregnancy test every 2 weeks until your cycle returns regularly.

You can't go by symptoms at all.  Impending menstruation can give you the exact same symptoms as early pregnancy.
