Welcome to HCM.
You have not mentioned whether your next period is overdue. Hot flashes are not a symptom of pregnancy and they have nothing to do with it. If you are pregnant you may feel tiredness and nausea or may have vomiting.
If you have missed your periods best way to know if you are pregnant is by doing a pregnancy test.

Depot injections like the one you are taking cause side effects like hot flushes, mild stomach pain, weight gain, warm skin etc. You may want to discuss with your Gynaecologist if the problem is much to handle.

Hi Ruby,
Just because your periods are delayed you need not be pregnant, and since you have taken a Depot Shot and if it is within the period of it's safety, it is very unlikely that you may be pregnant. However if you still think you could be pregnant, get a serum / urine pregnancy test done.
