Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Depo shot and period???

0 answers
Hello all, My last period was Nov 8th. I should have started between the 5th and 8th of this month, by the 15th I had started and made a doctors appointment for that day. I had already take 4 hpt's which were negative. I took another test at my doctors office, again negative. He recommended birth control, I chose Depo. Today is the 17th and I still haven't started my period, which makes me 9-12 days late. Should I be concerned or is it normal to not start after the depo? Could I still be pregnant? I just don't know if I should be panicking, or or assume this is normal, or call my doctor back.
