always hungry, my boobs started hurting, breaking out

User Profile
I stopped my depo shot 2 months ago I have not had my period return but my husband and I decided we would try for baby 2. 3 weeks ago I became very tired no matter how much sleep I get I have no energy. 2 weeks ago my appetite grew a large amount I'm always hungry. A few days ago my boobs started hurting me they are super sensitive and sore. And I'm breaking out all over my face which is not normal for me. Any ideas what could be going on with my body?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have stopped with your Depo shot, and if your fertility/ovulation has returned, then being sexually active without protection can result in pregnancy. The missed periods and symptoms that you describe (missed periods, increased tiredness, increased appetite/hunger, breast discomfort/sensitiveness, acne) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you have missed your periods, or if periods have been abnormal, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for underlying cause for your absent periods (especially rule out post-contraceptive ovarian suppression/failure, hormonal imbalances etc). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
