Am I pregnant?

I had my mirena removed on 5/22 and got the depo that same day. Waited 4 days and then had unprotected sex. Now 9 days later I have what I believe to be implantation bleeding. Started VERY light pink and came and went that day only a few times. Next day in the morning I wiped and it was brown and then none all day till later that evening and it was a light pink then once a reddish. Now today (3rd day) it is back to almost nothing but have a few pinkish wipes today. I feel like I have been having hot flashes and was nauseated the other night. I know I cannot take a pregnancy test for a few days after implantation bleeding correct? Does this sound like that? Also have had a few cramps here and there. but I woke up this morning feeling hot (did not take temp tho) Could I be pregnant? Also had a bit of mucus in my last wipe and now the spotting has almost stopped. only a light pinkish orange on tp evey now and then today

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Since you were switch from mirena to the depo. That too can cause changes to your cycles and perhaps bleeding. You might need to let your doctor know what you are experiencing. Other side effects of the depo can be cramping, stomach pain, dizziness, nausea, hair loss, and breast tenderness. Hope this was helpful?

I felt a very prominent tingling in my left breast/nipple then it stopped then went to prickling. Is this is a normal sign from the depo or could I really be preggo? anyone else have this? also stopped spotting completely.
