hi i had been on the contraceptive injection for a year and a half roughly. my last injection was due on the 5th december but i decided to stop using it, so i didnt go and get it done. this was about 4 weeks ago and i have had sexual intercourse since and not had any signs of my period as yet.
could this be anything to cause concern??

Kindest regards

User avatar Hi!

I do not know if pregnancy would be a cause for concern, but it would be the next step to investigate.

Warm regards,
