i got last depo 06/10/2015 and didnt get a full period till 12/31.. on sun. 1/10 i was nauseous and vomited twice. then on tues. 1/12 i realized in the afternoon i had very dark brown discharge. i thought maybe its implantation and i got pregnant. period was always a regular 28-29 days cycle. Now wed. 1/13 i wake up and BD'd and BOOM i was full of blood and have had heavy bleeding and cramping all day weds. and today. one blot clot size of quater (sorry tmi) and then just heavy flow. i tested and it was negative (thinking if so hormones would still show) could i have been prego and had a MC or could i just have a heavy IB flow and still be prego. Im thinking of going to urgent care tomorrow morning but not sure if im over reacting. AND YES IVE HAD UNPROTECTED SEX at least 5 times each of the past 2 weeks. Can someone please get back to me with their most knowledgeable option/advice.

Hi Bebaa

Thanks for your post!

Your have posted several times about birth control and pregnancy questions - the last time you said you were on the Pill for several months and that was only a few months ago. I assume you are off the Pill?

Pregnancy does not seem possible if you have very heavy bleeding and a negative test. A miscarriage often shows up with a positive test because the hcg hormone (the pregnancy hormone) is still in a woman's body.

Since your last shot was 7 months ago (they should be taken every three months) then you may be having your first heavy period and it's a doozy. It can take several months for some women to get their periods again. See what happens in the next few days and if this does't stop, talk to your doctor.
