Hi, I have a 5 and half year old boy, was single for around 4 years, but am now with a lovely man. I have been on the depo injection for around 3 months, but came off it in may. I have still not had a period since coming off it....sorry if I sound a bit dim, but am I still protected? Would really appreciate some advice please. Thanks :)

I had my Implanon (about the same as the shot but it goes in your arm for three years) taken out back in March. I never once started my period and ended up ovulating in May without realizing it. Right now I'm 15 weeks pregnant. You probably need to be extra careful for a while.

Thanks Michelle :) I had to come off the depo as it just made me feel sick and caused my moods to swing dramatically. I would personally love another child, but my boyfriend has 3 children of his own, and isn't sure he wants anymore as of now, so I think I'll go and talk to the doc then. Thank you again for your help. X

You can ovulate before your period starts. It's been 3 months so I would say there could be a very strong possibility of falling pregnant. If you don't want to I would be using another form of BC.
