    UTI or pregnancy?

    I've been on the depo shot for years now, and always assumed it was impossible to become pregnant. I've had times where I thought I might be, but all tests were negative. About 3 weeks ago I started having lower back pain, even at the slightest bend. I went to the doctor last week and was treated for a UTI. As of 5 days ago I developed severe hesrtburn, feeling as though my food was lodged in my esophagus. I have never in my life had problems with heartburn and now I'm getting it everyday. I also had frequent and urgent urination in addition to the back pain. Should I consider pregnancy?

    No birth control is 100% so pregnancy is a possibility with all birth control methods. Did the doctor do a pregnancy test? If not, have you done one?
