I got my first Depo-Provera shot on the same day my period was due I still have not gotten my period or any bleeding I am 13 days late now could I be pregnant?

No. Typically most offices will administer a pregnancy test before giving a woman the depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. It's possible that if you had sex a few days before you got the shot that you are pregnant. If worried, then consider a home pregnancy test, just to be sure. Normal for the shot to cause absence of periods entirely, though, that's a known side effect of the medication.

Please . Please take a pregnancy test to be sure, although it may be that your hormones are just out-of-balance temporarily. If it is negative, but you are still concerned, see your provider and have a blood pregnancy test which is more accurate. If you have pain, light-headedness, or heavier bleeding then you must be seen as an emergency. Read more...
