Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Hello I need some answers. Me and my boyfriend had sex the 29th of July and ever since the 31st , I been having pregnancy symptoms like nausea, craps, cravings, headaches, my back hurts and I just been so sleepy and tired. I don't know if it could possibly be my period that's coming. Because the 2nd of August I bleed alittle, but it was just like 3 little drops and they were light pink it wasn't that strong of a color. I took a first response pregnancy test came out negative. I would wait for my period, but I'm on birth control (depo shot) and it would come till 2-3 months. So I really don't know if I am or not? what should I do? Do you think I'm pregnant?

Even if you were pregnant, you wouldn't be able to get a positive pregnancy test at this point. It takes on average 2-3 days for the sperm to fertilize the egg, 2-3 days for the fertilized egg to travel down the Fallopian tube, and another 2-3 days for it to implant in the uterine wall. And after that it still takes a couple of days for your hormone levels to rise enough that they can be detected by a pregnancy test. If you're on any kind of hormonal birth control you can experience some odd side effects, especially pregnancy-like symptoms. In my personal opinion, I find it's better to use a birth control method that allows you to have a period every month.
