  • You might be pregnant, but there isn't enough HCG to detect in a home pregnancy test. My advice is to wait another week or two and test again.
    Good Luck!

  • I'm not a doctor, but here are my thoughts. Either #1 it's symptoms from just getting off the depo Or #2 you might be pregnant and there just isn't enough HCG to detect in the home pregnancy test yet. The two things you could do is #1 like the last poster said, just wait another week or two and test again or #2 see if you can get a blood test done at the doctor's office. Good Luck!

  • if you are, your HCG levels would be way too low to be detected on a home pregnancy test . I'd wait a few weeks till my period would start and take it from there

  • I would take another pregnancy test in a week or so, and then call your dr if that's still negative. This happened to me when I was 20 - pregnancy symptoms (including no period) but no pregnancy and it turned out to be a hormonal imbalance - my prolactin levels were high making my body think it was pregnant. It can be due to an often benign tumor on the pituitary gland, it wasn't for which I'm thankful, but we never figured out why exactly the hormones were out of whack. They eventually went back to normal.
