I got my first depo shot June of this year and then was due for my next one at the end of August. I missed my shot for basically the entire month of september and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. Is there any way I could be pregnant? Im tired all time, have sporadic headaches, mood swings and my belly's gotten bigger. This is only my second shot and I didn't get a period at all in october and havent gotten one yet even though its the beginning of november. I've taken pregnancy test and it said negative, but i've heard stories of women getting pregnant while on depo. Could i be pregnant? PLEASEE REPLY!

Any time you have unprotected sex, you run the risk of becoming pregnant. However, it is way too soon for you to be experiencing a swollen belly. That happens around the third or fourth month of pregnancy. Remember that coming off of birth control can make your periods irregular or no-shows until your hormones get back to normal levels. If the test is negative, you are most likely not pregnant. If you are really concerned, go to your doc and get a blood pregnancy test, which is more sensitive to the pregnancy hormone and more accurate than urine tests.

Once you get to the doctor to confirm that you are not pregnant, have your boyfriend use condoms until you can get on birth control you will take reliably.

You can get pregnant even on depo considering its not 100%, but as you get in your 3rd month your shot starts to ware off so its more guaranteed on getting pregnant
