Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you had a depo shot 4 months ago. It is usually effective for 3-4 months and women can become pregnant after that. However, it should be noted that the effectiveness of Depo-Provera varies and it might be effective for more days in some women. Therefore, you should continue to try to have a pregnancy and not get disappointed. You can repeat a home pregnancy test in a few days to find out about your pregnancy. If the home pregnancy test continues to be negative and you have pregnancy symptoms, you should then get in touch with your Ob-Gyn Doctor who can confirm the diagnosis with ultrasound test. Hope this helps
