    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I am very confused with the difference with pms or being pregnant. How can you really tell when you have been on depo for a very long time.

    Sadly you can't tell the difference between PMS and early pregnancy symptoms because they are very similar. Usually you 1st clue that you might indeed be pregnant is a missed period and even that's not a for sure sign.

    If you suspect pregnancy you can either test now with 1st morning urine and keep testing until you either get a positive or a period. Or see a Dr. and ask for a blood test.

    Best of Luck.
