Depo is gone now: Your period came back fast; 1 month after missing the last scheduled shot in october. Your fertility is 'back to normal' once your periods returned. At 32, you can try for up to a year, until october 2012, before seeing a fertility specialist (rei) for help if needed. 5 out of 6 couples get pregnant in 1st year trying. Use an ovulation predictor kit, have intercourse 2-3 times a week. Best wishes.

Can I get pregnant if I miss depo shot and not having my period??

Most certainly: O course you can get pregnant as once the depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) medication is out of your blood stream then ovulation can occur PRIOR to any succeeding period flow.

Can you get pregnate if you miss Depo-Provera shot by 4 weeks? I was supposed to take my shot last month and forgot and now im feeling different

Yes: Depo-provera is only expected to work if it is used as prescribed. Theoretically, you could get pregnant even if you miss the shot by one day. The greater the amount of time missed by, the greater the risk. A pregnancy test would provide an answer to the question.

Contraception: Unfortunately, the only way to prevent pregnancy 100% is to not have sex. All methods of birth control have a failure rate. Condoms if used correctly are estimated to be at best 90% effective. That means 10 out of 100 women will still get pregnant in a given year. Depo is about 95-97% effective... Iuds are better 99.9%. I even heard of a woman who had a baby after her uterus was removed.

Had sex Sept 12th was due for my next Depo-Provera shot 10/29/14 its been a week past & I haven't bleed usually I do when I miss my shot could I be pregnant?

Late bleeding: Check urine blood HCG since by now it should be positive if you had sex on September 12. if negative consider sonogram. That being said hormonal birth control is associated with menstrual irregularities.

Could I be pregnant if I go my Depo-Provera march 14 had sex on June 8 and miss my shot on the 16 and haven't gotten my period yet?

No: On June 8 you were still protected by the depo shot of March 14. It's not unusual that your period may not come for several months after going off the depo shots.

Can my last depo shot which was 4m ago be causing me to now miss my period in my first 7day break on the pill? Or pregnancy? Missed last week of pack

Yes: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) stays in your system for longer than just three months, but if you are on a pill, you may not see the period during the placebo pills for a few months, but it should return within a few months.
