Could I be pregnant?

okay ive written plenty of questions on here before about the same thing... but now things are a little different.. let me start from the beginning giving a little bit of history. Feb of 2010 i had my first shot of depo in April i went back for MY SECOND AND LAST shot i repeat LAST. I know when taken depo it takes your body awhile to return back to normal i bleed alot during august and FINALLY after going to the doctor October 1st it was confirmed from my OBGYN that the bleeding i had then was my period. It lasted about 5 , 6 days like it usually did before i was on BC light to heavy then light again. It is now Oct 31st and i charted my menstrual cycle based on how it was before 28 days.. which would mean my period now is about 2 3 DAYS LATE.. ive been sexually active trying to conceive and im anxious and thinking i could be pregnant im having sympthoms but not sure if i should wait another week or so... what are your thoughts

  • Did your OB/GYN not recommend that you wait til you have a couple of cycles before TTC? Your chances of having multiples when getting pregnant immediately after stopping ANY BC is higher.
    That being said - the AVERAGE cycle is 28 days. Mine were never 28 days. If you are not pregnant, give yourself another month before trying.

  • Keep in mind that BC can change your cycles. So, while your period was 28 days before, it may not be again. I would take a test and if it's negative, wait another week and test again.

    If still negative, keep charting and see what your actual cycle is. It can take up to a year to get back to normal even after only 1 cycle of BC. Good luck!

  • You could be prgenant but some months are longer than others so yourperiod may not actually be late. I would give it atleast one more week for sure. Then look for some of the common symptoms.
