I was on the pill for 3 months toward the end of last year and toward the end I was forgetting and missing pills, I just knew I was pregnant but the tests kept coming back negative. Now I am on the depo and I recently was put on amoxicillin for 10 days could I be pregnant the signs never leave
The only way you'll be pregnant on Depo, is if you were pregnant before you got the shot. or didn't get your shot on time. Amoxicillin does not affect Depo Provera. The only antibiotic that does, is Rifampin. Depo is so reliable at preventing pregnancy, that the tiny amount of people who claim they became pregnant using it, are so few & far between, & many of those will reach the conclusion that they were pregnant before or because they didn't get their shot on time.
You might find the info on this page useful:
You'll see about bone density on that page, & it is for that reason that I advise doing what I did, & using calcium, magnesium & vitamin D in the correct ratios (the ratios are important. The best combined supplement I could find in terms of percentage of each one, was Osteocare), but the best way is to look up the correct ration & take your own 3 separate, good quality supplements, in my opinion.
If you get a positive pregnancy test result now, then you still may not be pregnant as the hormone in Depo is the same hormone that would be present in Depo if you were pregnant. It fools the body by tricking it to think it's pregnant, so that you don't conceive. This is why many get lots of pregnancy-like symptoms when using Depo Provera. The only way to be sure if you did get a positive test result, would be to see your doctor.
There is mixed medical opinion about whether or not Depo Provera causes harm to an unborn baby, so best to find out ASAP. There is also a possibility of eptopic pregnancy, so severe pain would need checking out ASAP.
