Hey guys,

Just a quick qestion really about the DEPO SHOT..

The story is, i was having unprotected sex for about 4 months, i had a period about 3 & a half weeks ago, and last wednesday i went for the 'depo shot' but i told the woman, i was already on my period & there was no chance of pregnancy, maybe a stupid idea? im not sure.. So after the shot she said use contraception, which been stupid i never, so its been 7 days since the shot and i still havent started a period, could this mean im pregnant or am i better off waiting until my period due date which is sunday?

HELP!!

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Yes, I have also heard that when you breastfeed your baby you will not get pregnant for the first six or was it 4 months. Although it might not be safe to use contraception while you are still nursing. @ Miss confused, I think you need to wait first. If your period doesn't come on Sunday then you can try and take the test to see if you are indeed pregnant or not. If you are using vaginal rings, you might want to visit the Nuvaring Lawsuit Information Center.

We have witnessed all types of products being recalled from the market. This is a lesson to companies that they should thoroughly test their products before releasing it to the public to avoid damage. It is quite hard to fathom the fact that more than a few have already suffered the detrimental effects some birth control products. I just want to share this site http://www.mirenalawsuit.us/settlements/ , they have helpful information about the complications that you may possibly get from Mirena.

Hormonal birth control may not be advisable if you are still nursing because it may affect the baby. There are some manufacturers that warn women against breastfeeding while using their birth control. There are also side effects to these hormones that might transmit to the child. I have read somewhere online or was it at http://www.nuvaring-lawsuit.com/number-of-law... regarding these side effects.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
