I've had the depo shot for about 5 months so far and I have decided to stop it because my body couldn't take it. I was very sick on the shot so decided to switch to the pill, I am still on the Depo for this month but my doctor instructed me to take the pill this month. I started the pill yesterday. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on Thursday (2-5-15), and starting from yesterday Ive had cramps sometimes it gets intense but mostly it's minor. It is sometimes all around but sometimes concentrates on my right. I've had bleeding for about four weeks before had, light but ranged from pink to red to brown but I do not get my regular period. Is there a possibility that I'm pregnant? and these cramps are implantation cramps? The Depo is still in me, plus I'm taking the pill.
Your shot is still active this month, correct? No its not probable that you're pregnant or having implantation bleeding or anything other then your body is going to react to the hormones. Your dr told you to start the pills before you really needed to be able to count on them so that when the shot is worn off you will be protected. Pretty smart on his/her part I must add. Many times when the pill is started it will cause some bleeding. Your shot is still working.
