I got my first depo birth control shot yesterday.

Patient: I got my first depo birth control shot yesterday . and earlier in the morning I had to get my blood drawn for a pregnancy test . if that came back positive would they still gave me my depo?

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Depo shot is given to prevent pregnancy.If the pregnancy t est gives positive result, they won’t give depo shot because it will be ineffective.As they have given depo shot to you, possibly pregnancy test might have given negative result.Take care.
