Today is my last day on being the Depo-Provera shot for three months, how long will it take until it wears off? I want to get pregnant soon

3 months to 2 years: as there is variability depending on each individual patient. I would not recommend being pregnant at 16. At least finish your high school education or consider a vocational/technical school to give your future child a life with financial stability to be able to adequately provide for his or her needs. The average cost to raise a child from birth to age 18 is $241,080. ...Read more

Varies: Depo-provera is essentially guaranteed to work for contraception for 90 days, and almost no-one will conceive between 90 and 120 days. However, it is well know that a single shot of depo-provera can last for up to 18 months (yes 1 and 1/2 years). ...Read more

I just got on the Depo-Provera shot last month and started spottin last saturday how long will it last?

Varies: Spotting from depo-provera is unpredictable & can be irregular after the first shot. If it's not severe, wait it out & with time your cycles may actually stop. You should do better after your next shot & consider an alternative birth control if it doesn't improve. Good luck. ...Read more

I started the Depo-Provera shot last year november and stoped this year november how long will it take for my body to get back to my normal cycle?

I started the Depo-Provera shot last year november and stoped this year november how long will it take for my body to get back to my normal cycle?

Varies: Some women resume normal menses within a month or so, but I have seen some take up to a year to resume normal periods. If you stopped it to become pregnant, use a condom until you have had at least 1 or 2 normal periods as the lining of your uterus may be too thin to sustain a pregnancy after prolonged Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). ...Read more

My last Depo-Provera shot was november but i was due for my next shot in february but i skipped it its now april how long do I wait to schedule another shot?

No need to wait.: If you wait at least 9-10 weeks since a Depo-Provera shot, you can get one. For you, it is close to 20 weeks, so you can get it now. Get a pregnancy test even if you had periods since your last shot. You might consider getting a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud which is good for 5 years (great method-no weight gain and no periods). You can get Mirena (levonorgestrel) even if you have not given birth. Talk with your doctor about your choices. ...Read more
