Took the depo shot late, have pregnancy symptoms. Pregnancy chances?

I was just wondering if you can get pregnant while on the depo shot...I was late for my shot in July by almost 2 weeks and I have been having symptoms (milk discretion, cramping, lower back pain , fatigue ), but I m too nervous to take a test. Is there any possibility that I may be pregnant...I was completely torn when I had a miscarriage earlier this year, please please there a chance that I may be pregnant???

Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
If you had unprotected intercourse then these symptoms are quite suggestive of possibility of pregnancy.
You should have been regular with the Depo and when you knew you are late then you should have had barrier precautions; Now being afraid would not help. Delaying may be more traumatic if you do not want to keep pregnancy.
Please get home urine pregnancy test to be reasonably making sure you are not pregnant.
I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you
