Can I be pregnant?

Feb of last year I had my last depo shot. The whole time I was on the depo shot I did not have a period. My first period from being off the depo was on Jan. 2nd 2018, this lasted about 6 days and was normal period. I had another period on Jan. 14th that was the same. At the end of the month I started again but this only lasted a few days that went into the first day or second day of feb.  but normal flow. Then on Sunday, Feb. 10th, I had a little bit of blood that was very light and could only be able seen on toilet paper. This lasted until Tuesday, Feb. 12th and was only able to be seen on toilet paper. Could this be implementation spotting? Am I pregnant?? I am scared to take a test because I am scared it will be negative or too soon.

To me, your hormones sound out of whack and I'm guessing that is what all the bleeding and spotting is.  However, you have been off the depo for a good long time and it sounds like ovulation is ramping up.  You're still irregular which will make TTC harder.  Implantation bleeding is something that you see on the internet but not all that many women really have.  Same with ovulation, some women say they spot when they ovulate.  Never have known a woman that has done either of those.  :>)  But if you are actively TTC and had unprotected sex, then yes, you could be pregnant.  It's just hard to tell because you don't know first day of last period (as some of this is likely spotting) and you don't know when your period is next due.  So, I guess I'd wait until 2.5 weeks after your last sexual intercourse and take a test.  That would probably be long enough to get a positive.  good luck and let us know how it goes!
Thank you so much.
you're welcome.  Stay in touch and let me know how TTC goes!
Hello again. My last period was the last day of January going into feb. I still haven’t had my period but I am cramping in my back and in my abdomen. But the cramping is not all day, it will be there then go away for a few hours. Should I take a test or wait a few more days?
Go ahead and take a test if you haven't gotten your period by now.  Let me know what it says.  
I took a test first thing this morning and it was negative :( But I still have not got my period.
I don't think your pregnant but have hormonal things going on.
