I just got off Depo for about a month now and have had only one shot, I didn't like it. I'm still having the symptoms like being on it, like the same as prego symptoms. I just had a baby 6 months ago and am not looking to have another one. anyone have this problem or should I take a test?

if you have had unprotected sex since you got taken off it i would test. you are very fertile after you have a baby for i think the first 6 months or a year.

Yep. I had one shot and spent the whole 3 months thinking I was pregnant. I was still having the symptoms for about a month or so after I got off of it and had gone on the Paragard. It takes awhile to get out of your system.

I got off it about the 8th of last month and still no period and yes we had unproteced sex. Im allergic to latex so I cant use condoms.

There are condoms that don't contain latex.



And Depo can take a long time to wear off. But if you've had unprotected sex I would definitely test.
