    Birth control shot and unexpected misscarriag

    About 9 weeks ago i got the depo birth control shot. Unexpectedly I had a very clear miscarriage 5 weeks later. I took a test before i got the shot but it came up negative leaving me to believe I was alright to get the shot and drink coffee etc. The miscarriage was very clear. Afterwards i did not go the doctors because I did not know i was even pregnant at the time. My boyfriend does not know so it was hard to retain from sex before I knew if I needed an other shot ( I believe you do need an other one because they do not work if already pregnant- If someone knows please let me know). Also (second question) I have been having brown discharge instead of my period this month, could i be pregnant again (my boyfriend uses a condom each time once we start) It has been about 12 days since we have last had sex is it too early to take a test and get real results. Please post if you know anything about the situation or can answer some of my questions. thank you very much

    Hello, Anon_182444 and welcome. I am sorry to hear about your miscarriage.

    You'll need to talk to your doctor to find out if you need to change from your regular schedule of Depo Provera injections or not. Brown discharge is usually old blood, but if you're concerned you may have an infection, please see your doctor. Your doctor will also be able to retest to see if you're pregnant or not.

    Let you're regular moderator, Andie, know how you;re doing,

    Byroney
