    Am I Pregnant?

    Ever since the last time i had unprotected sex i swear i right away felt pregnant. Which is weird because we've done that before. Since then i have had cramps for days, weird pulling and tugging feeling in my stomach area. I am tired all the time now and sometimes just feel like im going to pass out. My appetite is all out of whack. One minute i cant eat and the next im wolfing down 40 wings. I just stopped taking my DEPO shots and i know i usually get my period every two months. Which would make it late but there is no way to be sure. I have taken 4 pregnancy tests all negative. If im right i should be about 4 weeks. What do you guys think

    If you've taken four pregnancy tests and they've all been negative, chances are pretty good you aren't pregnant. A lot of what you describe could just be hormones since you just stopped using the Depo shot.

    As for your period, it can take some time, in rare cases over a year, for your period to return after going off Depo.

    It may be to early right now. When people come off DEPO sometimes it takes a while to get your period back to normal. When did you last have unprotected sex? I would go out 14-18 days past that and then test again. It should show by that point and if it doesn't its likely your body getting back to normal.
