Can I be pregnant. I'm bloated and have light cramping, horny all the time. Can I be pregnant.
If started correctly, you are covered by Depo for 12 weeks, regardless of any bleeding you experience in between shots.
Once you stop taking Depo (don't take your next shot), you are at risk of pregnancy immediately, although it may take up to 18 months to regain your fertility.
The bleeding you are experiencing now, is likely to be hormonal, rather than a true period, but that's not a guarantee, as everyone is different in how they react to coming off Depo.
So yes, you could be pregnant, & I'd therefore take a pregnancy test.
