How long does it take to get pregnant after a year of Depo-Provera shot and then a year of birthcontrol pills?

Not long: It can take up to 8 months for the Depo to get out of your system, so by doing the pill for a year, it should be out of your system. The pill is out of your system quickly, but I usually recommend a couple of normal periods before you start trying. If everything works right, though, there is only a 25% chance if conceiving each month. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant if you only got the depo shot twice and the second timeyou had sex days after the shot?

No, but...: Anything is possible in real life. The Depo shot works very well (works right away) if a woman is on her second shot and did not get the shot too late. However, life can surprise you sometimes. A woman who thinks she might be pregnant can do a home urine pregnancy test. They are very accurate 3 weeks after sex, are inexpensive, and are sold in stores everywhere. ...Read more

I had the Depo-Provera shot a week after the start of my last period. What would be the chances to get pregnant if had unprotected sex and he ejaculated in me?

Uncertain risk: Assuming that you had unprotected intercourse after your period, and after the start of the depo shot, then your chances are probably lower than the baseline risk of 15-20%. Given that you imply that you had intercourse not long after starting the depo shot, then the risk is higher than it will be in about a month. Without more information, it is hard to give you a better answer. Check a test! ...Read more

Can a women get pregnant the first month she get the IUD if a man cum inside her?

Unlikely, if...: If an IUD is in place, it works to prevent pregnancy right away. Many things are possible in life, which means the question should not be "can a woman get pregnant", but rather "is it unlikely or likely that a woman will get pregnant". It is very unlikely that a woman with an IUD in place will get pregnant, even during her first month with the IUD, and even without a second form of birth control. ...Read more
