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.

I've been feeling discomfort in one side of the inside of my vagina and it feels like a scratch of some sort. I checked it out and found this thick looking, yellowish (discharge?) stuff there and don't know if that's normal. It appears only on one side and not the other. I have no discharge but the yellowish thick looking discharge is stuck there.

It is difficult to understand what you are describing without more information.

If the issue continues please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center. 

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 went in to my doctors office to have it administered. The medical assistant who gave it to me did not administer the full dose. A decent amount of it I would say about 20% of it squirted out everywhere. I am worried it will not have the full effect now. I informed my provider and waiting for them to get back to me. Do you have any information or advice regarding this incident?

The recommended dose for Depo is 150mg every 3 months.  

If you did not receive this amount you could be at risk for unplanned pregnancy.  

You should discuss this with your provider and may opt to repeat the dose or use another method of contraception until your next shot.  

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 sex and used protection but it hurts when i go pee . what is wrong with me ?

Pain with urination could be from irritation or infection. 

 If it continues to hurt please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center for further evaluation and testing

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 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?
