I started the depo shot last December or January and had one up til July when it was renewed I still haven't had a period I haven't had one since my first shot I received in last December however I had sex October 30 is there a chance I could be pregnant or is it not possible because of the shot and no period
If you had sex once you missed your Depo shot, then it's possible that you are pregnant, so I'd advise you do a pregnancy test.
It can take up to 18 months to get your fertility back, once stopping Depo, (18 months from the date of the missed shot), so it's quite normal not to have a period yet. People can also find their period is irregular, or even constant, until their body settles back down.
Some people get caught out because, despite not having their period, they had sex once their shot was overdue, & happened to be ovulating. They therefore ended up pregnant, without seeing a bleed.
