Need pregnancy test: It would be wise to ask your Gyn for a blood betaHCG pregnancy test to confirm you are not pregnant. If negative, consider requesting an intrauterine device (IUD) or a subdermal contraceptive implant which are the most effective methods of contraception. Be safer. Continue using condoms too for STI protection and review your reproductive life plans with a knowledgeable healthcare provider.
