I got "the shot" for birth control about 7 weeks postpartum. I was "due" for my appointment on Tuesday 10/19/2010 but due to a mishap with the pharmacy, my prescription wasn't refilled and I missed my appointment. SO & I DTD on 10/21/2010 without any protection and now I am freaking out about getting pregnant again so soon. DD was born 6/10/2010.
Before we got pregnant with DD, we were 4 years without ANY type of BC. I was put on the pill because of what they thought was a fibroid, the hormones in the pill supposedly were going to either shrink or grow the fibroid and I was to check back in 3 months. After my first pack of pills I missed my period and got a positive HPT. DD was born 6/10/2010.
I've never been on "the shot" before, so I'm not sure how quickly it gets out of the "system" so I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not with it being just 2 days after I was due for my 2nd shot.
