Well I had unprotected sex 3 times on November 11th and since then I’ve felt kinda weird, sore breasts for a couple days, nausea, funny feeling in my lower abdomen, dizziness, headache, not wanting to eat a lot, feeling bloated.
I don’t know maybe my body is playing tricks on me, but I have a son and it feels kinda like my first pregnancy. I don’t have more stress than usual and I was on the depo shot which I haven’t had since March so I know it wouldn’t be working but I haven’t had my period for months so I don’t know what to really say about that I had some very light bleeding on the 16th.
So can I have symptoms this early and do you think I could be pregnant again?

Yes, it can take some time before a person is able to get pregnant after going off the Depo shot. Some people say 6 months while others say 12 or even 18 months. I’ve heard some even say it took them a couple years! However, it really depends upon the individual. Since you are a fertile 16 year old, you would probably have different results than a 33 year old.
I would definitely recommend taking a pregnancy test; however, the next question is when is the earliest that you could take it. It’s only been about 10 days or so since you had sex, and that is most likely too early for noticeable amounts of hCG to be built up in your body. I’d recommend waiting to take a home pregnancy test on Monday, December 5. By then, if you really are pregnant, the test should give you fairly accurate results.
And now for my opinion: I personally think it’s too early for pregnancy symptoms to display themselves. If you’d been experiencing these symptoms several weeks after the unprotected sex incident, then it might be a different story. But in your case, I’m guessing that your symptoms are being caused by something else.
