If u had your period already for the month after stopping depo and then miss it when it's time to come again could u be pregnant?

If u had your period already for the month after stopping depo and then miss it when it's time to come again could u be pregnant?

Yes: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Many : Many women who take depo stop menstruating. This is actually one of the most common side effects. Many women dislike this because they worry that they may be pregnant. Over time they realize this is just a side effect of the depo and they become less and less concerned. In the beginning you will need a lot of reassurance, which possibly means a serum (blood) pregnancy test. If over time you don't like not having a period you may want to consider another birth control option. All the best. ...Read more

Get tested: The only way to determine if you are pregnant, even in the best of circumstances (timely depo, iud, tubal ligation, ocps, etc) is to have a pregnancy test asap. This could be urine (cheap and accurate) and blood HCG level (the gold standard) its worth doing a urine test every 48 hours as the HCG levels in the blood double in that time and the numbers rise fast enough that any urine preg test works. ...Read more
