I had my first daughter on the pill. The was back in 94 when i got pregnant. Well, For the past 10 years I have been taking the depo provra shot. I weny off in Janurary and have not taken any birthcontrol. I have tripped and feel down and crushed my ankle and broke my fibula which cause me to be in the hospital having surgery. I believe Depo is bad!!!
My question is, I have been off depo since Janruary. The last few weeks, I have been sick on my stomach, morning,afternoon and evening sickness. I have had a tight feeling tension headache. I've felt tired and sleepy but I cannot relax to actually sleep. My breasts are sore. My nipples ache,I cannot stand the water to touch then in the bath. My face and neck is broke out. I have lower abdomen cramping. I cry or I yell. I am just wondering...Can I be pregnant. I have spotedthe last month or two but not a real-heavy period Then I did this a week or so ago again. I want a baby but I know Depo can confuse your body into thinking you have pregnancy symptoms. I was this. I have a thickish white discharge which dosn't itch or smell.. But my nipples being so sore and my lower back cramping... What do you think?? I don't want to take a test and be dissapointed... I ahve prayed to Gog to have me a baby growwing inside me... With my symptoms, what do you think?

All the symptoms you’ve mentioned are subjective and can be seen in many other conditions, too. Nothing can be compared with the reliability of the pregnancy test and ultrasound. I recommend you take a home pregnancy test immediately. Fear of disappointment can be balanced if you ask for support from your family, friends, and other eHealthForum users. You can do it!
