If you consume to much sperm on the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot, can you become pregnant?

No: If you are talking about swallowing semen, there is no way that you can become pregnant that way. If by chance, sperm spills from your mouth to your vulva, then you are back to the 1/1000 failure rate of regular Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) therapy. I would say that chances are very remote that swallowing large amounts of semen would have anything to do with your risk of becoming pregnant. ...Read more

Depends: The progesterone triggers the bleeding by providing the hormone that you were presumably low in which allowed your estrogen to continue building up the lining of the uterus unopposed. This may get your cycle back on track but if you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome it may happen again. Speak with provider about why they felt you needed the progesterone and what they expect after this regimen. ...Read more
