and I don't know why. If I didn't know any better then I would swear I was pregnant. I feel sick all the time and really really drained and tired. I keep getting odd twitches/flutterings in my tummy (no I haven't got wind!) And I have just realised how much of a certain food I have eaten after a few days I know this sounds daft but is there such a thing as a phantom pregnancy in humans????
Phantom pregnancy is a condition that women usually get when they want to be pregnant an awful lot for whatever reason.. it can and does happen! I don't know anything about the hormone injections (do they stop your periods?) it could be something to do with that maybe..
Having no periods and being broody would make me 'feel' pregnant! It would be like me when trying to concieve, every little odd pinch or a few days of lateness, slightly sore boobs around when my period's due, that's enough to convince me half the time! Maybe if it carries on you should mention it to your doctor? It takes very little to confuse our bodies, especially when we want something! ...Well, my body anyhow lol
you are pretty unlikely to get PG on the hormone injection (Depo I assume) but it is not 100% impossible. IIRC the effectiveness rate is something in the region of 99.7%. so probably wouldn't be a bad idea to do a test mainly for your own peace of mind if you are having pg symptoms. and it is highly possible for humans to have phantom pgs.
Oh dear Feelingodd, sounds a bit suspicious..... Though I have to say, I often get fluttery feelings in my tunny that are just like baby movements and I am not pregnant. Wind I suppose. Are you going to take a test?
were you on time for your last injection? if so then the chances of you being pg are negligable. some women get pmt symtoms even when they're on the depo but don't get the bleeding this could explain it.
On the news now, there was a story about a woman with a 7 month old on some form of contraception (I assume the mini pill) who has just found out she has conceived identical quadruplets. I kid you not!
