Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to do a pregnancy test.  The depo shot is 99% effective, but not 100% effective.  It is less effective in women if they don't get their shots regularly, or if they are markedly overweight.
Even if neither applies in your case, you should probably find out, and will probably be relieved.
Good luck!

I was on the depo shot for 2 years and then a break and then another 2 years. I had some of the symptoms you mentioned during the first six months of my body getting used to it. Both times. Birth control can often cause pregnancy like symptoms. However birth control is not 100% effective so take a test if you think you might be.
