  • no, but usually you have 7 days in between the day you were supposed to get the shot b4 they are concerned about pregnancy. so if the 3rd was exactly 3 months then you have till the 10th b4 most dr offices will give a pregnancy test. but when you do go into the dr to get the shot just request the test to be safe.

  • oooo then yes its possible lol......take a home test or get one the next time you go in. but i def wouldnt get the shot till you're 100% sure. The biggest effect is premature birth, but thats still not something I'd want to mess around with.

  • ya they'll want to wait a month to be sure to get a positive if you are preggo. they will test you b4 giving the shot......since you are bfing make them give you the test when you go in.
