Depo-Provera- Now I'm feeling 'flutterings'. is this a side effect?

Already been on here in a state about the amount of weight I have gained from the Depo- over the past few days I have felt 'flutterings' - like when you can first feel a foetus move about.
So part of me is as paranoid as hell that I'm pregnant - which is a disaster - but also I've read that this has been experienced by lots of women on the depo.

Anyone else had this?

I have an lawful feeling that this depo hasn't worked and I'm about to need a pram.

I never felt flutterings on it but I'd never been pg and didn't know what it felt like.
Do a test.
The earlier you know the better and hopefully you'll get the result you want.

I have had fluttering feeling before too.... Someone on mn suggested a mineral deficiency, so I took a multi vitamin and mineral supplement and it disappeared within a week and hasn't been back.

Good luck

I've had this. Funnily enough since I stopped Depo last year I haven't had it again. I used to wonder what is was tbh
