Women : Women usually start to ovulate within several weeks to several months after depo wears off (assuming that is the shot you've had). So getting pregnant is a possibility. If you are concerned, then take a pregnancy test. Use a condom if you wish to prevent pregnancy, and the condom also prevents infection. ...Read more

If : If you've been having unprotected sex, you have to rule out pregnancy. The only way to know whether you are pregnant or not is to take a test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Did you take your test too soon? There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more
