I only had depo once and when I was supposed to get my second shot on the 26th of August, I didn't. On the 31th I had unprotected sex and my doctor gave me YAZ on the 2nd of September since I decided not to continue with depo. I'm not feeling well at all. My discharge is as milky as it was when I was pregnant last last year. I finished my first pack of YAZ today and I was supposed to have had my period already. Is it possible that I am pregnant?

If your depo shot was late you are at risk for pregnancy.  

If you are concerned you could be pregnant please schedule an appointment with your doctor or call the Corner Health Center for an appointment for a pregnancy test and to make sure you do not have an infection. 

So I got my depo shot back on June 9th it was the first one I've had in 6 years. Well I had unprotected sex with my ex August 29th and he busted a huge load in me, only like a week before I was supposed to go in and get another depo shot. Well here it is a month later, I haven't had my period. I'm moody as hell... Basically having similar symptoms of pregnancy. I never went back In for my second depo... Now I've googled alot to see how long depo covers and what not... But it's not really giving me answers I'm looking for. Does anyone else have a similar situation and could it be possible that I am pregnant???

This may be an odd question and is probably laughable but I figured it could be helpful to other people too. There is a challenge called "butt sharpies" that is pretty popular on a subreddit. As you can imagine, it's exactly what the name implies. Long story story short, I tried it. I had an off-brand large sharpie and inserted it opposite of the cap to be on the safe side. When it came out, the text markings saying "permanent marker" on the outside shell of the marker were mostly gone. Should I be concerned? Is there anything that can be done in this situation

Well, it wouldn't be surprising if the ink from the label did rub off.  If you are having any discomfort or other symptoms please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider.
