  • Where are you going to get the shot? At the Dr.'s? Tell them EVERYTHING you just told us, theyll give you a test and then you can put your mind to rest, or run to Walgreens and do it NOW! Good Luck;)

  • ok, perhaps you are not pregnant, could be a side effect of the birth control is 100% effective though...double check and make him wear a condom.....

  • More than likely it's a side effect from the shot. I was on it for 4.5yrs. If you really think you are...tell them when you go in and have them do a quick blood test. You should have about a 2wk window to be able to go in for your shot, so go in towards the beginning of that in case the blood test results take a couple of days (sometimes they do, depending on where you go), so you have enough time to go back and get the shot.

    Be careful with the shot...I know every woman is different, but still...don't stay on it for too long, it can cause future problems. I'd say no longer than 2yrs if you can...and by then it SHOULD stay in your system for about 6+ months after that...

  • They'll give you a pg test before you get your next shot, just to make sure.
