Could I still be pregnant?

I have been having anxiety bouts recently. Also, some bloating around my belly area. Although, I did just stop depo-provera. I have not been sexually active in the past 3 months, and the last time (also around three months ago) was protected. I have also done three pregnancy tests—1st was 14days after last intercourse, 2nd was 2 weeks ago, and last one was 2 days ago—they all came back negative. Thank you so much, and sorry!

Hello again km0901

If you have taken this many tests then you are not pregnant. There is no reason to think you are pregnant, based on your recent posts. You need to be patient and wait for your period.
Unlike the birth control pill, where a woman can get pregnant days or a few weeks after stopping (and she can get her period soon after too) it can take several months for women to get their period when they have come off the Depo shot. For some women it can be as long as 6-12 months. So you need to stop focusing on pregnancy and accept that your period could take several weeks or months to start again.
