Off pill. Due for DVT. Got depo shot. Tender breasts means pregnant?

Hi I was taken off the pill back in April due to having a DVT in my left leg. In the meantime i have been as careful as i can with condoms and then last Thursday i got the depo shot but since having it i have put on 4 lb in weight(in exactly 7 days), im feeling rather sick, have tender breasts and have bloated belly. Ami just being paranoid, is this symptons of the depo shor or should i take a pregnancy test?

It seems that your symptoms are due to the depo. However it is difficult to be 100% certain.
If you have any doubt at all and possibility of contraceptive failure is there, best is to take a pregnancy test and put your mind at rest.
Hope that helps.
