  • You can usually take a urine home pregnancy test on the first day of your missed period. This is usually about two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.

  • depo can cause you to not have a period for upto a year and CAN keep you from getting pregnant for upto 34 months google it

  • If you are on depo shot, why are you worried about being pregnant? I would take a test, but it will likely be negative. If it is then don't worry. You shouldn't even worry until after the 21st.

  • I waited until I hadn't had a period for two months. My periods are very irregular, though and I have gone as long as 5 months without a period and no chance of being pregnant.

  • Well if you would normally have a period by now then you could take a test now and it should be pretty accurate. If you get a negative and you still don't get a period by April 1st then would test again! Good luck

  • I usually wait a couple weeks aftermy due date of the period. then I take the test. If this keeps happening then go see your doctor, and see what he tells you.
