Okay so I'm 21. I have endometriosis and when I was 18 I had a cyst on my ovary that ruptured. I had surgery and got put on the deposit shot. That was in 2012 and I've been on the shot ever since. I stopped having periods at the end of 2012. I was supposed to get my deposit shot in march and did not due to financial issues. And I'm recently in a relationship and we had a little slip up two weeks ago and I'm just wondering how soon I need to take a test to see if I'm pregnant or not. since I don't get periods I have no idea when to take a test or if I am even able to get pregnant at this point. I can't really talk to anyone in my family about this so some help would be great. Thnx.
