hi have not been on here for quite some time. I have had 2 injections of depo provera and have now been depo free for 3 weeks. Earlier this week i was having awful pains and assumed it was ovulation starting back up, since i have had unprotected sex a few times and pains have gone. This morning i woke up feeling really sick. is it possible i could be pregnant this soon after coming off depo? I have not even had a bleed yet.

I think it'd be quite unlikely as it can take quite a while for it to leave your system, but certainly not impossible.

do you think i should do a test then just to see? and if you do when would you recommend i do one? thanks xx

I wouldn't do a test until 2 weeks after you first had unprotected sex at the very earliest. Probably better to leave it 3 weeks.

Just what I would do though.

Im 18, I had three shots of depo provera. I have been of depo for 9 months now, it took three months for my periods to return after I discontinued depo, my periods were irregular but have been improving every month, but this month I have not seen my period at all which is worrying since I’ve been getting my period every month for four months. I am having unprotected sex with my partner. I was looking into taking Angus Cactus to help my periods regulate quicker but I am scared now as there might be a chance im pregnant and I have heard that taking Angus Cactus while pregnant can harm the baby. Could anyone help who is in the same dilemma or share any storied of this happening to you, what was the outcome?
