Birth Control

I have this weird metallic taste in my mouth but I'm on Nexplanon (was on the depo but switch to Nexplanon on the same day ) and my boyfriend pulls out way before and I tested a day ago and It was negative. So why do I have this taste in my mouth

Having a bad taste in your mouth could be from different things.  Are you taking any medication?  Do you have any teeth problems? 

If your problem continues schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center

I am on the depo shot and I have been on time every time. My boyfriend pulls out every time we have sex but we don"t use condoms, just pull out method. Is there any way I could be pregnant?

If you get the depo shot on time you are protected against pregnancy

can my period come back after being on depo and then switching to nexplanon (on the same day)

It wouldn't be unusual to have some irregular bleeding when changing birth control methods

I have been on Depo for 5 years or more. Is it possible for me to get pregnant while still on Depo?

It is very unlikely to get pregnant while on depo if you have gotten your shots at the correct time. 

Hi! I'm on the Depo shot & I was at 11 weeks when I had sex, the day after I got another shot for the next 12 weeks. Could I be pregnant? How effective is the shot?

The shot is very effective if you have gotten it on schedule.  

I had my last depo shot at the end of January 2020. I was due for my next one at the end of April. I still have not had it due to the coronavirus. When will my periods return and can I go back on the shot when allowed?

Regular cycles can take up to a year to return . 

You are at risk for pregnancy if you have missed a shot. 

Please call your primary care provider or Corner Health Center to make an appointment 

for your depo shot 

Hi I was On the Depo shot for a while on April 2 I switched to the Nexplanon. So my partner and I had unprotected sex last weekend but he pulled out way before and delivered it else where (not my baby shoot) and now he's worried about precum., could I get pregnant?

If you received the  Nexplanon on April 2nd you are protected against unplanned pregnancy. 

I was late by two days for my nur-istrate shot and i went and took the shot two days later than the date written on the book can i fall pregnant and do i have to wait 5-7 days in order to have unprotected sex?

If your shot was more than 12 weeks from your previous shot then you should wait 7 days in order to have unprotected sex. 

I got my first depo shot in August of 2019 I was due back for my shot November 2019 I decided to skip it and try to reschedule but I never went , I eventually had unprotected sex again around June 21 2020 I wanted to know if the depo shot is still effective or should I go to my closet clinic ?

A depo shot in November 2019 would not protect you against pregnancy in June 2020.  

Emergency Contraception is effective up to 5 days after unprotected sex.  

Please call your primary care provider and Corner Health Center to discuss a type of contraception that would be good for you 

Good day.i was on the Nur-istrate for 3 years then i got a implant for 3 years then after i had 2 shots of Depo.my last shot of Depo was September 2018.was supposed to get another shot on December but i didn't. Weve been trying to get pregnant since January 2019 up until now but nothing please help.

It can take up to a year to get pregnant after stopping Depo shots.  If you are concerned that you are having trouble getting pregnant please schedule an appointment with a gynecologist. 

You can get a referral from your primary care provider or schedule an appointment at Corner Health for further information and a referral to our gynecologist
