    Hi Rosie-
    I know that this can be a scary time and can sometimes consume your every thought. There are a few things to help with the worrying a bit.

    Has it been at least 5 days past when your period should have started?

    Because pregnancy is detected by a hormone, this hormone level builds as the baby grows. So you need to wait at least 5 days after a MISSED period to be able to detect pregnancy. You will need to wait for this time period to happen. Then, you can find out what is going on and whether or not you are pregnant. I know it seems too hard to handle, but I am here for you!! If you still haven’t missed a period. Than you need to wait until you do to take a test, otherwise the results may not be accurate.

    It is also important that you contact your doctor that gives you the depo shot and let them know about your situation and the symptoms you are having. They could be the result of other issues that your doctor will be able to explain.

    When you are ready, you can go to this great website and find a center near you that you can get some assistance and support. Click on the link and it will help you locate a nearby FREE and confidential center where you can go and get a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL pregnancy test.

    You can also text PREGNANT to 313131 and they can help you find some resources to help you give you some guidance.

    Once you have taken this step, I can help you through the next steps too, whatever the results are!! Please let me know what you find out or if you have any difficulties. OK?

    Luv-Molly
