I have a stupid question about birth control

I have a stupid cousin who swears up and down she is on depo provera. We don't believe her. We think she's trying to get pregnant. But whatever.

I was wondering if the active ingredients in depo would show up if she had lab work done? It's hormonal, right? So in theory, she would have a lot of whatever that hormone is in her system. So say she went and found out she was pregnant...would the blood work also show that hormone?

I don't think there is a test for birth control.

I don't think so.  I used to know a girl who did get pregnant while on the shot.

Well not specifically for it but would the hormone used in the shot show up on blood work?

It's a synthetic form of progesterone. I'm not sure the labs can distinguish.

Not necessarily.

This will sound stupid but is that also the pregnancy hormone? I can't remember anything from the pregnancy books...it was a loooooong time ago lol
