Birth Control

Hi , I got 3 months injection of prevention on 19 June and my next date was 14 September and I missed it then on the 19 of September I had unprotected sex and I have been seeing spot , what are the chances of me getting pregnant?

If you had unprotected sex after your depo was due you are at risk of pregnancy. 

Also, It may take a while for your cycles to be regular again. 

If you are concerned please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or Corner Health Center to get a pregnancy test and find the type of birth control that is right for you. 

Hi i'm about to be 19 years old. I've been on depo on and off over the years since i was 13. and when i'm on depo i don't get my period at all. im supposed to take my shot on the 13th of october 2021. On october 4th 2021 i started spotting. im getting cramps, my boobs kinda hurt a little bit, i have to pee a lot more often, sometimes i feel sick like i'm gonna puke but i don't. i took a pregnancy test on september 23 2021 and it came back negative. did i take it to early? could i be pregnant? what should i do?

If you have been getting your shots when they are due then you are protected against pregnancy . If your previous shot was not on time and you are having symptoms of pregnancy then it is advised to check a pregnancy test 

I started using depo injection last year October everything was fine so I missed my injection on 8 July 2021 I started my periods for 6 days and I had unprotected sex repeatedly in August I didn't get any periods and on September 15 I started feeling nauseous, moody and headaches on the 29 September 2021 i took pregnancy test and it came negative on the 1 October 2021 I started spotting till today now am having cramps and back pain what could be wrong with me

It sounds like your hormones may be slightly off since stopping the depo.  You may want to repeat a pregnancy test . 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health to schedule an appointment to find the type of birth control that is right for you. 

I had sex on the day of my ovulation with a condom. I do not know if it leaked or broke but i am guessing that it didn't. I was fingered afterwards and there might have been semen on the fingers. I have been nauseous for a few weeks now and I am six days late for my period. It isn't always so regular and I have been stressed, I have hormonal imbalance and have changed my diet. My breasts have been sore and tender but that is a very common PMS symptom for me. But I cannot tell whether I am pregnant or just purely late.

If your period is more than a week late take home pregnancy test or all Corner Health to schedule a pregnancy test and to discuss the type of birth control that is right for you. 

A friend was supposed to take a second depo shot on 19th of July, but missed it and had unprotected sex on 4thof September and took p2 pills, later had sex on 9th of September and took another p2 pills, she then later put a depo injection on 10th and did sex on 17th and since has stomach cramping, nauseous and severe mood swings, could she be pregnant?

From what you described your friend has had a lot of extra hormones.  In order to know if she is pregnant she should take a pregnancy test. 

I took my depo shot the 21st of July and have unprotected sex the 26 of the same month can I be pregnant

If it is your first shot it is effective after 7 days. 

I had my first depo shot on 19July 2021 and I had sex on the 27 July I safe from pregnancy or do I need to go for a test

Yes you are protected against pregnancy 7 days after your first shot 

I got my jab on my last day of my period I had sex on 7 day can I get pregnant ?

From what you describe it is unlikely that you would get pregnant. 

Monitor for any symptoms of pregnancy and to be certain you can always take a pregnancy test.  

Started Depo on the 31st December 2020..spotted in March for 10 days. Had my last Depo shot on the 28 March 2021, was on antibiotics twice in this period and had unprotected sex a few times. The last was 10 June 2021. No period to date but I have stomach cramps, swollen breasts and nipples, breast are sensitive, fatigue, extremely emotional, watery discharge, sore gums, metallic taste in the mouth, headaches, leg cramps, constipation, took a test but came back negative. Should I wait to take another test or is this PMS?

It is unclear what could be causing your symptoms .

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or call Corner Health Center to have this checked out .  


Please I had my first depo shot on the 2nd of august and I had unprotected sex on the 8 of august please am I safe?

Depo protects against pregnancy 7 days after the first injection .  The time can vary depending when your last period was. 

You may choose to take emergency contraception today or tomorrow for increased protection.
