If: If you are taking the medication as prescribed and getting your shot on time is very unlikely to get pregnant.

Day after depo shot unprotected sex now crampy achy pains in lower belly nausea clear sticky discharge no smell what's wrong???

Infection: If you started the Depo at the right time you should not have to worry about pregnancy but without a condom you have no protection against STDs. Your symptoms, achey pains, nausea, and a discharge, sound like that could be your problem. See your PCP, gynecologist, the health department, Planned Parenthood, or an urgent care clinic for testing ASAP. Hope this helps and you feel better fast. ...Read more

Late receiving Depo-Provera shot, had unprotected sex but later got shot. Since then have been feeling differen't have received one shot since. Can I be pregn?

Late receiving Depo-Provera shot, had unprotected sex but later got shot. Since then have been feeling differen't have received one shot since. Can I be pregn?

Unlikely: I say it's unlikely that you are pregnant, because most clinics will perform a pregnancy test prior to giving the depo-provera shot. Having said that of course if you became pregnant in a few days leading up to your shot, then the test could be negative but you are actually pregnant. Home pregnancy test could answer your question quickly. They are fast and accurate. ...Read more

Always possible: It is much more reliable to just do a pregnancy test because almost any bleeding pattern you can think of may be associated with pregnancy. You don't say how late you were with the Depo but the method is relatively forgiving. ...Read more

I'm 15 days late for the Depo-Provera shot I had unprotected sex while I've been late and I did yesterday when would be a good time to take a pregnacy test?

Ovulation and Depo: Return to ovulation when coming off Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) varies from patient to patient. If you are beyond the expected date of the Depo-Provera being effective, it is possible for you to conceive but would require enough time for yor body to produce an egg and the egg to become fertilized. Generally, an OB will want a current pregnancy test, no unprotected intercourse and repeat pregnancy test in 2wk to resume. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: Depo-Provera works well, so pregnancy is unlikely. However, one can do a pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications.

I have been on birth control for 2 years, my last was late. March 17 I was suppose to get my shot and I had unprotected sex that day. Could I be prego?

Confusing: I think you are communicating that you had sex after your birth control shot expired. If that is true then yes you could have conceived. Anyone having sex without birth control or condoms is at risk for pregnancy. Use condoms. Get your next shot, check a pregnancy test in 10 days. ...Read more

I had a abortion maybe like four weeks ago and then I got on the depo shot a week after! I had sex the day before the shot and the same day I got the shot and been having unprotected sex since! Now discharge is yellowish. Is tha?

Sounds like infected: Yellow discharge is highly suggestive of pelvic infection and needs to be checked out urgently. Also, having sex before the depo and not using protection is high risk behavior. You just had an abortion, it is time to start thinking about healthy choices for yourself. ...Read more

Nothing is perfect: If you are taking the depo-provera shot as prescribed, have not missed any shots then you should be protected from pregnancy. However, the only 100% effective birth control is never being exposed to sperm or not having an intact Uterus, ovaries and tubes. Therefore, take a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. ...Read more

A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Too soon to know: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
