Question: Trying to get pregnant!

 wolfman woman - Sun Dec 11, 2005 10:59 pm

Hello! I have been on Depo for 4 years and have came off to have another baby. Last shot was in Aug. I have diabetes and take metaformin and pradin. Can they cause problems if I am taken them and finally get pregnant? Also lately I feel like I am already pregnant. Running to bathroom, sick on tummy all the time and very sore breast(tender to clothes). This has been going on for about 3 weeks now. Could this be from coming off the shot or could I really be pregnant? Home test was taken on the 2 and the 6 but was neg. Should I test again?? Thanks alot!!!

I was on depo for a year and the whole year after felt like i was pregnant. it also took me a year and a month to get pregnant again. doesnt mean you are the same, but the depo takes awhile to wear off. don't get your hopes down though, best of luck on getting preggers.
