Period

I am late for my period (which is unusual), I have a lot more discharge than normal, my right lower abdomen hurts to press and I've been waking up to cramps in my right lower abdomen (I'm not pregnant). What could this mean please?

What you describe sounds lke it could be an infection.  Please schedule an appointment with you primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

Hi, I had sexual intercourse in February after getting my Noristerat needle shot in January first week, I then went and got a needle shot in March the beginning of the month. I haven't had sexual intercourse again and I stopped the needle because I don't want to use it anymore, I'm celibate. So I just want to know if there's a possibility that I am pregnant now or is the needle leaving my system?

If you got the noresterat injection at the recommended time you would be protected 

against unplanned  pregnancy 

Hi, I have a question to ask. I had my two months (Noristerat) injection on January the 6th 2020, I then engaged in unprotected sex with my partner in February 15th 2020 and that was the last time I engaged in sex. I was then due for my next needle in March 2020, which I received. I then recently decided to abstain as I'm on a spiritual journey and I don't want to sin in such unnecessary ways like having sexual intercourse out of marriage again. So after my March needle appointment I didn't have intercourse again and I haven't gone for anymore injections, basically I didn't miss my shots between the sexual incident. Does this mean that I'm at risk of being pregnant or not? And when will my period come back?

It looks like you had your injection on time so you would not be at risk for pregnancy . 

It may take a couple of months or longer for your regular period to begin again.

If you have sex the day after your period does it increase the chance of pregnancy? I'm on birth control

The greatest chance of becoming pregnant is mid cycle around 2 weeks after your period begins.  (the exact day varies person to person)

If you are taking birth control as it is recommended then you are protected against unplanned pregnancy.  

I am on the depo shot and just had my period. Is it normal to have skin/tissue to come out when you're on your period? I've never seen anything like this

Menstrual periods shed the uterine lining which contains tissue and blood, so it is not unusual.  

Depo can change your periods. Sometimes it is heavier.   Usually by the 2nd or 3rd shot menstrual periods stop.  

I had unprotected intercourse on the 14 of june 2020 and on the 24th supposedly was to be my period but it never came through till this day...does that mean I'm pregnant?

If you had unprotected intercourse you can become pregnant.  

If your period is late please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center for a pregnancy test. 

I noticed very light pink spotting on June 29th when I went to the restroom then on June 30th I had a light flow until July 2nd that fluctuated between bright red, dark red and brown. My cycles normally last 6 days is there a reason why it only last 3 days this month?

It is not unusual to have an irregular cycle. 

If you have had unprotected sex and are at risk for pregnancy or infection please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or with Corner Health Center. 

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 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
