Breast tenderness and weight gain with Depo injections.

Patient : My depo injection ran out a few week ago i have got sore breasts, i seem to have put on a lot of weight in a short period of time and ive been feeling sick. is there a chance i could be pregnant?
Doctor :   The symptoms of breast tenderness and weight gain could be the result of the depo injections. Since you've been off the injection, there may be a chance that you are pregnant. I would advise you to get a urine pregnancy test done to confirm pregnancy.
