Pregnant? Terrified!

Hello
I'm new to this site - used to be on another site (not mentioning any names!) and asked for advice on a different topic only to be given a load of sh*t! Anyway... I'm 39, have a two year old, single mum in a new (ish) relationship - split with my daughtr's dad 15 months ago, went on a blind date in Jan, met someone amazing. He has a daughter from a previous relationship too and is the opposite of my ex- open, caring, funny, 6 years older than me. We used condoms, have always been careful, both got checked out for stds, then I went back on the depo injection at beginning of May. For the last month I've been having nausea in the morn, feeling faint, weird 'fishy' discharge, and spectacularly emotional! I've heard the depo can cause symptoms but I never had them before? I'm basically terrified I'm pregnant... I know, I know, just do a test!!! But the last time I did a test to 'eliminate' pregnancy from my enquiries, I was pregnant (got pregnant on the pill last time! Can't happen twice can it-getting pregnant when using protection!?)
I really like my life. I didn't enjoy being pregnant last time. I haven't even known this guy 6 months!! I'm 39! Any reassuring words, similar experiences or advice would be great.
I know .... 'Do a test!'

Do the test! I don't think you are pregnant btw x

I don't think you are pregnant, but adjusting to new hormones.

You're very unlikely to be pregnant, it's more likely that Depo is taking a while to adjust, or perhaps that it doesn't suit you. But go pee on a stick already!

Do the test to put your mind at rest. We are here to support you no matter what the results! Either way this stress is not good for you. Good luck.

do the test. at least it will stop you wondering if you are or arent brew

Fishy smell can often be bacterial vaginosis infection--not an STI.
I think it is the Depo injection unless you were less careful with condoms before you had the Depo. If you had Depo within the first 5 days of your period you should be fine

You do realise that taking a pregnancy test can't make you pregnant, don't you? Of course you do - you don't sound dumb - but you're letting panic dictate inaction here. Do the damn' test already! Not knowing isn't going to make it not happen.

If you're pregnant, you're pregnant. I kind of understand wanting to have a sort of plan ready in case you are but then if you're not that's a lot of wasted worrying and effort.

Better to get the test out of the way and worry about it afterwards or hopefully not have to worry about it all but maybe consider a trip to the GP about the side effects of the depot.

Lovey, I fell pregnant on the Mirena coil - anything can happen. You need to POAS.

But, honestly, if you don't want to be pregnant, you don't have to be (if you even are, that is).

Thanks everyone for the reassuring words and encouragement to get me arse in gear & POAS. I still haven't. But I'm going to in the next 24 hours. Or maybe sooner. Will let you know.

Hello all
I peed on a stick. The test was negative. I'm so bloody relieved. And I'm getting off the depo-it's doing strange things to my body & soul!
