Am i pregnant on the depo?


Q: Am i pregnant on the depo shot? I have been on it for over 2 years and have never had these symptoms before. I do not have a period on it so i can't go by a missed period to tell if i am or not.

Symptoms:  I have had cramps (for a few days), mood swings, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, tender breasts, constipation and headaches for two weeks now. i also go back and forth between not being able to eat and wanting everything, my sense of smell has gotten stronger and more sensitive. i have never had this on the depo before for over 2 years now.
