I want to know is it possible to be pregnant?

Patient : Depo shot about a month ago had unprotected sex day after now having pink discharge??
Symptoms:  Feeling like period coming . weird lower ab feeling
Doctor :   Hello, A depot injection is usually given at the onset of the periodic menstrual bleed either on day 1 or 2. So if you had unprotected sex on day 3 of your cycle then you being in safe period when ovulation had not occurred , there are no chances of you getting pregnant. However if given in the middle of the cycle ( which you havent specified) , then it must have been advised to you to follow barrier contraception for the whole month as protection from depot would take around 2-3 weeks to establish. So if you had sex in the fertile period then you may be pregnant. You can confirm pregnancy or rule out presently with a serum beta hcg test which if found to have raised levels would confirm pregnancy. If negative then these symptoms experienced by you form a part of the premenstrual syndrome and you should be expecting your menses sooner. I hope i have answered your query, wishing you good health, regards
