So I've been wanting so badly to get this posted and am so glad that CM is back up! This is somewhat late, but maybe I'll get some responses quickly. I had my baby girl 6 months ago, at my 6 week post partum visit I got the Depo shot, so I was on that for the 3 months, but did not get the next shot due to losing my medicaid and having no insurance. I had no period during these 3 weeks which is normal for me when on the shot, which I had been on a couple years ago.There is supposed to be a 2 week safe time after the due date, I started and had a normal period one week after the due date for the next shot, so the day after the period ended me and my boyfriend had sex because technically it was still in the safe time (though I do realize if I had a period it had probably worn off). I assumed since I had a completely normal period that I would get it again the next month, however it did not come. Since that last time we had sex we have not had it again. My last period started with spotting on Sept.7th, really started the 8th and ended about the 11th. Yes it now has been almost 2 months since my last period and almost 2 months since we had sex last as my boyfriend is very afraid to get me pregnant again and we don't like condoms. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests, 2 being about a week or so after I was supposed to get my last period (like begining of Oct.) I kept getting negatives so I can only assume that the Depo shot messed me up. I haven't taken another pg test in the last few weeks because I feel like I'm wasting money.
However, I am going in to get Implanon on Monday, technically today considering its after midnight. I do plan on requesting a blood test rather than just a pee test that they normally do before giving birth control. I'm somewhat concerned over the fact that I have heard of people not having anything show up on pg tests until they are quite far along. I have two kids and it always showed up right away, but I'm just worried. I mean it probably is not likely that if I am almost 8 weeks along that it would not show up. I just don't want to end up getting the implant and then find out I'm pregnant. This is probably silly, it just seems odd to me that it has been nearly 2 months since I've had a period after having a normal one.... I've just never gone this long without a period when not pregnant or on bc. I always get my period back right away after getting off bc. I know in this case it may have just messed me up, but after only one shot it seems odd, I hadn't been on bc for a year before I ended up getting pregnant. Any thoughts or suggestions?
