... the depo and dont have peroids is there another way to tell??
Hello Rissa and welcome to DC. Your question and further comment do not make sense. I would go back to your doctor for a pregnancy test if you haven't done a home pregnancy test. If you decide to take the home test, test first thing in the morning...
If you are over due for that shot, of course there is a chance you could be pregnant. It depends how long it has been since your last shot. Nobody here can determine whether or not you are pregnant. You do need to stay on top of the shots though and use backup method of bc until you decide what method would be best for you. That is why I suggest you go back to your doctor... your doctor can discuss your options... how they all work... what steps you need to follow to make sure that the method you choose is one you can follow.
BUT, in any case... with any of them, if you don't follow the proper protocols for whatever method you choose... backup precautions are necessary for any and all of them if you truly do not want to become pregnant. So, perhaps the Depo shot is not the one for you but there is something out there that will fit your lifestyle and budget.
I wish you well and do the pregnancy test... driving yourself nuts isn't the way to go... neither is the 'wait and see' option either.
