I recently decided to resume use of depo for 6-12 months. After discussion with the DR at the VA clinic and PAP, etc. I went to the lab for HCG pregnancy test. I had to await the lab results before the injection was administered, of course. They called me back for the injection and I went on my way. Several hours later the DR called to inform me that my pregnancy test was positive! Somehow, no one had checked the lab results! I normally double check these things myself- I have worked in health care- but, I was in such a hurry to get my daughter from school.... VA clinics take so long... I am upset with myself for being lax and not asking to see the results, but even more LIVID with them for the mistake! I feel that there is not any accountability. She told me that there should be no adverse effects on the pregnancy/ baby and that they have seen this several times! So, there must be no accountability! Anyway, my concerns are of course for the baby. I should be about 12 days post conception now. I have a hard time believing that there are no risks to my baby. If this were the case, then why the blood test. For other forms of BC I have had urine tests, which are not as accurate. So, why the extra precaution for depo if there are no risks?
