Symptoms:  Tender boobs,nausous, sick to my tummy,headache, lower back pain
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. If you have been off Depot for 3 months now and have already resumed your menses for t he previous months and have been sexually active but not on any form of contraception, then in case of missed periods in this cycle , you may need to rule out pregnancy in that case by a serum beta hCG test which is a lab-based test and can be performed 7 days post sex. If the pregnancy is ruled out, then the symptoms can be attributed to premenstrual syndrome which may mimic early pregnancy symptoms in the absence of pregnancy, but indicate that your menses are about to start in next few days. I hope I have answered your query. Regards
