I need help getting pregnant what should I do? I got off my Depo-Provera shot in middle december. Recently 2 weeks ago january I started having light bleeding for about 2 days then it stopped. Me and my fiance wants to have a baby. So on monday we tried.
this question needs to be answered by your gynecologist after a thorough history and physical. Withdrawal bleeding is common after depo-provera. However, your recurrence of bleeding may be a sign of something else. You need to have a physical examination including a pelvic examination. One sexual encounter rarely results in conception, but then again it may. Sperm may be viable for more than 3-5 days in the female genital tract, but that should not be your concern right now. You need to be seen by your gyn to find out why you are bleeding heavily (menorrhagia).
On another note, if you are planning to conceive, you and your partner should have preconceptional counseling and make sure you have your appropriate vaccinations, check for sexually-transmitted infections, and see whether or not you are anemic. You should also know your blood type, and start taking Folic Acid supplements either by pills or in your diet, i.e., oranges and grains. And stay away from hot tubs. Preconceptional counseling is key to having a healthy pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes you can: Being on Depo does not always prevent periods, what it does prevent is ovulation (egg release). Having a period does not mean you are ovulating. Periods are the shedding of the uterus.
