    Not sure what you mean hun, are you pregnant? In non-pregnant women, hCG levels are normally undetectable.

    I would doubt it, but I dont know for sure. If you are just off depo its more likely that you body is getting back to normal. I believe that it can take a while. Good luck though. XXX

    Have your periods come back at all? It may take a few cycles or longer to get your periods back. I was on Depo and my periods never came back so I was put on the pill for 3 months to bring them back. It worked after the 2nd pack....something to consider but I think there may be other methods hunni.

    good luck.

    bumpy- yeah i have had periods, they was regular up until now, i was just worried that the depo might make it not show up on tests or something. i havent had an injection since last year although i was suprised everything went back to normal quicker than i thought considering the time i was on depo. i guess im just worryin as to why everything has been regular and i missed my period but negative hpt? but im pretty sure it took my mum a while to find out she was pregnant and my auntie so maybe it runs in the family??

    Sorry I thought you had just come off it. Well family history may well explain it. Good luck XXX
