  • Take a test now. If it's neg then take one in 3 weeks.

  • Ugh, I understand. It's not like you can take a test every day! I would talk to your doc about regulating another way...

  • just take tests. But I can tell you from experience you probably arent. It can take up to 9 months for fertitlity to return and up to a year for periods to regulate but if you DID get the shot its VERY unlikely. Depo actually has the highest success rate with proper usage as well as "average" usage (late shots etc)

  • Only way would be to take a test. Symptoms aren't for sure even if you get them.
