Hi I've been on the Depo shot for about 5 to 7 years. I missed my shot and was pregnant the next month when I thought my shot was due. After I had the baby I went back on the shot. I've been getting it for almost 4 years now and I missed it 2 weeks ago. I have really bad cramping right now and I know getting pregnant off the shot isn't all that common...or so I've been told its normally not expected to get pregnant for a year after you had your last shot. I have 3 little girls and my fiance has 2 kids. We really don't want any more babies right now. I haven't mentioned that I can't use condoms. So I'm scared and I would like to know what could happen and when I should expect to have a period. I would stay on the shot but I can't afford it.
