Wat does it mean wen ur on the Depo-Provera for the first time u don't get ur period for amonth andahalf ur pregnancy test is negative what does this mean?

Wat does it mean wen ur on the Depo-Provera for the first time u don't get ur period for amonth andahalf ur pregnancy test is negative what does this mean?

It's normal: The contraceptive, Depo Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) inhibits egg maturation and hence ovulation. Because it is a progesterone it may cause the lining of your uterus to become thin thus there is no 'build up' or thickening of the lining (endometrium). Since there is no significant 'build up' there is nothing or very little to shed. This shedding is your period. So you may not get you periods or it may be spotting. ...Read more

Brownish or darker: Blood generally means that it is old(er) blood -- in your case meaning it may have stayed in your uterus a day or two longer than it should. When in doubt check pregnancy test twice 1 week apart. If this continues and you have discharge afterwards, cramping, vaginal itching then go get yourself tested for vaginal infection.

If : If you are pregnant, you may have a light period or no period at all. As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 – 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. ...Read more

As : As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 to 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you even earlier. It is always better to be safe than sorry and to know sooner rather than later. Good luck! ...Read more

If you haven't had your period in 3 months does that mean pregnancy?

If you haven't had your period in 3 months does that mean pregnancy?

Could be: If you had unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. Do a home pregnancy test. There are other causes of missed periods. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Because period is over a week late after taking Ella one does that necessarily mean pregnancy?

Because period is over a week late after taking Ella one does that necessarily mean pregnancy?

Probably not: Ella, Plan B, and other emergency contraception pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Ella was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Ella works most of the time, but not all the time. Cycles should return to "routine" after the first or second cycle. ...Read more

Would pregnancy be noticeable seven weeks after conception? No signs. Just an irregular on time period.

Would pregnancy be noticeable seven weeks after conception? No signs. Just an irregular on time period.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like just an irregular period ...Read more

Abnormal: It is certainly abnormal to have periods that close together. Anything that affects your hormones can cause it — infection, antibiotics, stress.

I got period 2 times, the 20th of last month and 10th of this month, which came early. Is that a sign of pregnancy?

Check a HPT: It is hard to tell just from what you stated in the question. Spotting or light period is quite common during the early months of pregnancy. I suggest a home pregnany test which is easy to do, fast, and highly accurate. If pos, congrats. If neg, repeat in 3-5 days. Eitherway, eat healthy, exericse regularly, sleep well, and take your prenatal vitamins to best ensure healthy pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more
