Pregnant after missing shot by 4 days ?

User Profile
I have been on the depo shot for a little over a year now. Last month i missed four days in between my shots and now for the past week i have felt sick to my stomach (like I did when i had my first child). Sometimes it feels like i have fetal movement but I cant really tell if it was or not. I have a few other symptoms of a pregnancy. Is there any way I could be pregnant? Do I need to take a test or just wait?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you have missed just 4 days between the shots, then chances of pregnancy are less. You could be feeling nausea due to withdrawal effect of hormone or due to any other cause such as acidity, food intolerance etc. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
