Getting depo provera injections. Feeling irritated, food cravings and frequent urination. Should I go for a pregnancy test?

i have been on the depo provera shot going on 6 years now. i have not had a menstrual cycle in almost 6 years due to the shot so i do not have "period" symptoms. here lately, i have been feeling a bit "un" normal, like, being extremely irritable over nothing, overly tired for no certain reasons, having cravings for foods that i would not normally eat, using the bathroom (#1) more that i usually would, and so on...i go in 2 days to get my next depo shot, should i have a pregnancy test done then or should i have them schedule a blood test from where i do not have menstrual cycles?

Thanks for writing to us.
The chances of pregnancy in your case are very rare because you are on depot shot regularly but no protection is 100% effective.
You should consult a gynaecologist for urine, blood test and ultrasonography to rule out pregnancy.
Good luck.
Take care.
