Brief Answer:
Sorry for misunderstanding.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Sorry for misunderstanding.
I thought you took depo shot before abortion.
So depo shot was not working as you got pregnant.
But you took depo shot after abortion. Right?
If you have taken depo shot after abortion then it will work and you are protected against pregnancy.
So please let me know
1. Date of your abortion.
2. Date of Depo shot.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Hi, I recently fell pregnant - 5 weeks. I went for an internal scan as I was spotting brown discharge and mild cramps. The sac was lower in the womb than expected and I was told this was due to a possible miscarriage. I now have to wait 2 weeks for another scan to see if there has been any change. I have since the scan, spotted red clots and the brown stuff seems to be getting worse but have no pains. Do you think I am definitely going to loose my baby?
