... on March but I did not go and get it again since it was causing a lot of spotting its April already and I keep spotting almost every day so when I do have sex I start to bleed again , but I have also been having pregnancy symptoms. Like morning sickness, dizziness, fainting, vomiting , etc. Could I get pregnant even if I am spotting??
It takes months sometimes to get back to normal. You could get pregnant if you're not using protection. Fainting? really? I've never seen on pregnant woman who fainted. That's mostly for tv. Pregnancy would not be giving you any symptoms yet.
You put hormone into you body, & your body was trying to adjust to it, which is why you were getting hormonal bleeding/spotting.
Had you continued for another 2-3 shots, the bleeding usually stops all together, because your body adjust.
When you stop using Depo, removing that extra hormone from your system, your body has got to start adjusting all over again, & that can cause months of hormonal symptoms, such as spotting/bleeding, back ache, nausea, bloating, dizziness (anything that can be connected to changing hormones).
Depo mimics pregnancy in your body, in order to convince it that you are, so that you don't produce an egg (ovulate).
It's just going to take time for you body to adjust to what you're doing to it.
Pregnancy is only an option if you could have conceived before you went onto the shot.
