I was scheduled to receive my depo injection on or before April 7, 2010 and I did receive it until April 23,2010. On April 19 and April 22 I had unprotected sex with my fiance. When I went to get my injection at the doctor s office the did a urine pregnancy test and it was negative. Is it still possible to be pregnant?

I'm a 42 year old female, 5'3 and 128lbs. This week my Dr.'s office told me that I need to have a B12 and iron study (my iron is low because of numerous fibroids). On March 30, 2011 I had a deprovera (spelling ?) shot to assist in lessening the bleeding for the fibroids - I've had a light menstrual cycle since April 2. Recently I've notice that my urine smells like onion, and I wanted to know possible causes? Thanks.
