Birth Control & Pregnancy

Patient : Hey im on Depo Provera and I don't usely have periods but I last had sex on October 2nd unprotected but I was bleeding a little October 24 and October 31. It only lasted 5 minutes. I also have cramps in my stomach, urine alot and sleep a lot. I wake up in the morning with major headaches and my feet hurts so much I can barely walk on them. Can I be pregnant?
Symptoms:  Urine a lot, sleeping more, eating more sometimes and sometimes less, major headaches, cramps in stomach
Doctor :   Hello.thanks for asking the question. If you have been on provera regularly and not missed any dosage then the bleeding you experienced is breakthrough bleeding and no chance of pregnancy as the ovulation is suppressed by provera completely. These symptoms may arise in some during the breakthrough bleed but subside on their own. However if ghe symptoms persist you may meet your physician or report to the ER. I hope i have answered your query in detail. wishing uou good health . regards
