HI~I have been trying hard since June to get pregnant. I have regular cycles and if I am stressed out it comes early and heavy. I experienced a miscarry at 20wks to the strangling of my baby from the umbilical cord, we have been tracking my ovulation days. I have not had a period since September 21 and 3 at home EPT tests negative and one from the doctor was negative I am 13 days almost 14 days. I have been bloated some heartburn, migraines and sick to my stomach but not throwing up like I did with the first two, anyone else have this happen before and I am just not making enough proteins to show on tests? Help me please

Hello i have a question. i am really confused. i was on the depo shot off & on for three years. i stopped taking it in july of 2010, & i just got back on birth control on july of this year. i was due for my next shot between the dates of 09/22/2011-10/8/2011. usually when its time for my next shot, my period comes on. this time it didnt. i had a period in august, not in september, & this past month, in october for about 3/4days i had pink spotting. it never turned red, & wasnt heavy at all. could i be pregnant? or is this my body getting used to being off birth control?
