I had stopped my depo shot may 19th. which was the day my shot was due, June I did not bleed , thinking my body is just adjusting to normal , I had super sore breasts, once again , thinking it was the bc trying to exit my body, now July 6th through the 10th I bled it wasn't heavy but it was super red , starting two days ago , I spotted a little , light pink color , and now I have brown clots , is this July's period and the bleeding was implantation ? And missed junes? I don't want to take a test yet until I see if I miss another period because my first born , every test including blood / urine from the doctors were negative until I was three months along puking my guts out . Or is something wrong with me . I've felt nausea sometimes here lately but not a lot . I really want to have a baby , so I'm hoping this is pregnancy

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.
It commonly takes up to 3 or 4 months after you stop taking the depo shot for you to be able to become pregnant. For some it can take up to a year or two.
The bleeding you had does not sounds like implantation bleeding. It is more likely an irregular period due to hormonal changes. Nausea and sore breast can also be PMS symptoms, not only pregnancy symptoms.
Like you said, sometimes it take a few months before a pregnancy will show on a test. I know you are anxious to know if you are pregnant or not; but you will have to wait until it shows on a test.
