In brief: Problem

I am a physician that does not like depo shots for most women.
I did early but found a problem. Like you, they were not sure if their control was still in effect at the end of the cycle do to missed periods. You are concerned about early instead of 3 months but this was a real problem and resulted in frequent pregnancy tests.
