    Should I take a test

    I have been on the depo shot for 2years, my last shot was in May. I am not sure when my last period was or when I will get it again. I took a pregnancy test a few weeks ago and it was neg. My breast have been hurting to the point that it wakes me up at night. Also all day yesterday I felt like I was going to be sick all day. The question is should I take a test even though I took one a few weeks ago I don't want to keep taking them when their is really no need to keep taking them since I have not received my period. Me and my husband are trying to get pregnant. I am just confused.

    You could just have symptoms of coming off the shot. Also, when coming off the shot, it can take a year, rarely longer, for your periods to return.
