I am b-12 deficient and i'm suppose to take b-12 shots. I haven't had a shot in over a year now and my blood count hasn't dropped. Is it possible that the doctors were wrong and I am not b-12 deficient or is it just my wishful thinking that I am b-12 deficient and I need to return to my shots. I'm suppose to take them once a week.

Active User, very eHealthy
Usually when you are pregnant your periods are lighter and don't last as long (in my experience anyway) and can last up to 6 months into your pregnancy. But I know some women who have had normal periods for a few months into their pregnancy. Maybe someone else has experienced this.
Have you had unprotected sex or done anything to make you beleive that you might possibly be pregnant? Sometimes when we think we might be pregnant our body tricks us and we tend to experience symptoms. Let us know!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
B12 deficiency takes months to occur. Once the deficiency is corrected, maintainance dose should be taken life long if there is underlying pernicious anaemia,subacute combine degeneration of cord or relapse.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
