Question: on depo and think im prego

 BEdge2 - Tue Jul 13, 2010 8:02 am

I am 17 and been on depo for a year and 3 months. I am very sexually active. I have been having symptoms of pregnancy but two negative tests. I have been reading that 2 negative tests is possiable to have and still be prego. I have not had a period since 11/17/09. Is it still possiable for me to be with child?

User avatar Hello,
Of course it is possible but very rare after two negative tests. There is a small failure rate with every method of birth control except abstinence so always in the back of your mind. However, to become pregnant while on this contraception AND to have negative tests really would be a long shot. Your symptoms may be due to something else - hormonal or otherwise.

Best wishes.

thanks. since my last posting on 7/15/10 i had a fall off a kayak and hit my stomach on the dock. I have also taken 3 more tests, 2 being once again negative and one positive on 7/20/10! I have also lost 10lbs. in a matter of 4 days! Could the shot and my fall made me have a miscarriage? Whats the precent chance I am pregnant?
