I don't know if this is in the right forum or not, but I really could use some advice. I was wondering if there is any chance I could be pregnant. I know it's a long shot, but I quit taking my depo shot over a year ago and have not had my first period yet. Dh and I aren't activly ttc, but if it happens we will both be happy and if it doesn't then it doesn't. Either way we'll be happy. Having said that, I feel pregnant, I really don't think I could be but I would like some input. I really want to have another baby so I don't know if it's that that is making me feel this way, or if I really am. Thanks in advance for all your help.

You could have ovulated and conceived on your first cycle after stopping the shot. Then you would be pg, but would not have had a period. It's certainly worth taking a test.

Thanks! I can't wait to find out! I'm planning on going to the doctor if the test is neg. Because I think I have a problem of some sort if I'm not preg.

Yeah, I was going to say just to POAS, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Easiest way to answer the question.<br><br>
I wanted to add that it can sometimes take up to 18 months to get your period back after going off Depo. If it goes much beyond that, you might want to have your doc look into it.<br><br>
Good luck to you!

Sorry, I've been working, and haven't had time to update. I haven't poas yet, I'm a bit broke, and haven't had a chance to get to the Dollar Store yet. I'm going to try to get going early enough to stop in on my way to work. I'll keep you all updated when I know something for sure.

I really do want to know, but I'm super worried that if I'm not preg than there is something wrong with me because of how long I've been off the depo. My last shot was in Nov 2005. I was supposed to get another one in Feb '06 but I didn't like the way it made me feel so I just didn't get it. This whole thing has kinda got me stressed. I know I probably just need to go to the doctor to find out why af hasn't visited yet and what I can do about it to try and get things back to normal. If anyone has any ideas on that I will gladly try them, even though it is OT. Thanks again and I will keep everyone posted, hopefully I'll know more by tomorrow night.

I poas today, it was negative <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. I was really hoping for a positive. Oh well, not time yet I guess. Tomorrow I will call the doctor to find out what is going on with my body and when I can expect things to get back to normal.
