User Profile
hi i have recently been having symptoms of pregnancy and about 4 months ago i had a depo shot done after a termination, i have recently had a internal ultrasound checking for a cyst i have a simple follicular cyst on my left ovary, the took pictures of my uterus and nothing seems present in there, if i was pregnant would it most def show up on the scan, or not, straight after the depo shot and the termination i bleed lightly for 3 months straight, and now for about 2 weeks i have had a white discharge and in the last couple of nights i have had clear liquid almost like water come out and alot of it, it literally feels like i pissed my pants. i just need to know answers and i am hoping very much that there is a possiblity i am pregnant because i have been trying for 6 years until i feel pregnant by somebody who i didnt want a baby to so unfortunatley terminated it but now i am back with my old partner and happily getting married i would like some answers thankyou

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were sexually active within first 3-4 weeks after getting the Depo shot, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. It is also not uncommon to find women getting pregnant while they are on hormonal birth control. Your symptoms (increased vaginal discharge, spotting) could be suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you are having symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, or if you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid having intercourse during first trimester. Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods.
Take care.
