Many . Many women do not have a period on the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. In fact, many women choose this method of birth control based on this side effect. Since you have taken multiple recent pregnancy tests which have all been negative, you are most likely not pregnant and your missed period is due to the Depo-Provera shot. If you continue with the Depo-Provera shot receiving your dose on time every three months, you will have a less than 1% chance of becoming pregnant - about the same odds as having your tubes tied.

That's good you're using condoms, but they prevent pregnancy only 70% of the time, may want to consider a back up birth control in addition to condoms. But likely you might have normal period in november. Maybe something like NuvaRing or iud would be good for you if you don't like pills? Read more...
