Can depo affect a pregnancy test ?

My friend got depo after she had sex cause her mom made her but she took a test after a month and it was negative .. She feels different and knows her body so should she be worried?

  • More than likely they would have done a pregnancy test before giving her the shot, at least I know they did me when I got on the shot last summer. Depo Provera can give you side effects that make you feel like you are pregnant, and especially(as they did for me) after you've gone off the shot and not taken the next one. As for your question, Depo Provera does not affect the results of a pregnancy test because what the test is looking for is hCG. Depo Provera contains synthetic progesterone.

  • The test is correct. Depo has nothing to do with a pregnancy test, shes probably having side effects from the shot.

  • no the depo will do nothing to the test,what shes feeling is just a side effect of the shot...when i first got mine it made me really sleepy and really hungry

    i did get pregnant using the shot though...but it did nothing to the test still came out positive when it was supposed to
