DEPO side effects will clear up within 2-3 months while pregnancy symptoms will continue. If you suspect you may be pregnant you need to have a blood test. Both cause an absence of menstruation, most women will have no menses the entire time they are on Depo (after the first few months of spotting/irregular bleeding). With pregnancy you will have nausea and breast tenderness, which are not usually present while on Depo.

How early does the father have pregnancy symptoms?

The father will not have any pregnancy symptoms because he is not the one who is physiologically capable of being pregnant. Only the mother will have pregnancy symptoms. Unless he is in proximity to the mother, he may not even be aware of the pregnancy. That being said, when fathers and mothers are experiencing a pregnancy together, the father will experience the secondary effects of the mother's pregnancy symptoms. He will be a witness to the pregnancy and therefore is a natural recipient of some indications that the mother is pregnant. For instance, he may detect mood swings and/or increased breast sensitivity. He should be extremely delicate in his response to these symptoms and acknowledge privately that the mother is being unduly influenced by irregular hormones and thus outwardly cautious, gentle, understanding, and patient. Becoming angry or reactionary to these changes in the mother will not reverse the symptoms but may only exacerbate them, particularly in terms of mood swings.
