Hello,
I've posted here before but i cant remenber my account login hmm
I'm 24 and
I posted about being late for my period and getting BFNs. I last had a period on December 24th-December 31st. It hasnt come since!
Backstory: I came off the injection December 3rd after only having it once bur it didnt react well to me so i came off it after 12 weeks (as soon as i could), had period December 24th to december 31st - normal period for me (light then heavy then light).

My partner and I have been dtd regularly but i havent been keeping up to date whether i have ovulated or not.
I'll attach pictures but i had light pink then orange mucusy thing on February 4th. Thought my period was coming but it never came! So i thiught maybe implantation bleeding but I took a test FRER again last week - BFN. And i havent took one since.

I'm guessing i'm due on again tomorrow since i have been feeling very emotional this week but any thoughts? Is it most likely the injection?

I would say it's the Injection if you are having negative tests. I know they can take a while to leave your system and for your cycles to then regulate. Do you know if you are ovulating regularly at all?

I presumed i wouldve been ovulating again if I had my period 3-4 weeks after coming off it confused but I dont really know much about the after affects of the injection minus what ive read on google!
I'm still hoping for a BFP but obviously the chances are getting slimmer

If you are getting negatives then I'd err on caution. Could you start taking your bbt? If it's quite high then you might be able to see if you've ovulated? Although it will be a bit of a guess as you don't have a baseline. Fingers crossed its just a delayed bfp though!

Hi, @Ywrqand I was using the depo injection as my form of contraception for a few years and came off it this time last year. My periods returned the next month (even though we'd been told it can take up to a year) and they were horrendously painful so different to yours but over the months settled back down and I would say it's only been the last 3 months where I've felt some sort of balance / normality with them. Having spoken to my doctor the injection can have a lag effect so even though periods might seem like they've returned, hormones can still be imbalanced as the injections lingers if that makes any sense. I've also been tracking using clear blue digital advanced ovulation kits which help me know when I've been ovulating and that seems to be falling into more of a 'normal' pattern too. Hope that helps

I had the injection in September. Didn't have it again as I didn't get on with it. Had a bleed around dec/jan but then nothing since. I'm definitely not pregnant. Sorry, just think it's your body getting back to normal.

@ywrqand bbt is basal body temperature- you take it with a specific thermometer very first thing every day and generally it stays low until you ovulate then rises about 0.4C until AF arrives- if you don't ovulate it doesn't rise so it's a good way of confirming it and where you are in your cycle x
