Pregnant on contraceptive injection ?

User Profile
I have recently been seeing this girl she has been taking the contraceptive injection, her next injection was due 3 days after we had sex. which was 14 days ago, Now she says shes pregnant? So ive researched about the web for the facts about pregnancies whilst on the contraceptive injection, theres so many could be's and maybe's about it. Im looking for a professional opinion as to be honest i dont trust her, and friends and family think shes making it up! an opinion will be much appreciated thanks.

Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Usually if a woman has been taking the contraceptive injections on time, then she remains fully protected all throughout. Either this girl remembers the date wrong and was already due for the injection or she is not pregnant. You can go with her to a lab and take a blood pregnancy test for confirmation.

Other than that it could also be that she had some sickness due to which the effect of the depot injection wore off at the end. The only way to confirm is take a pregnancy test in front of you. Hope this helps. Take care!
