So I got the depo shot a couple weeks ago and I was supposed to get my period a couple days later. Well it never came and I went and took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Should I be worried? Please help I’m young and scared

Welcome to this forum.
You need not be worried. This delay is due to the injection itself. And don't worry about getting pregnant. You are entirely protected.

Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
