If you have unprotected 4 days after getting the depo shot can you get pregnant.?

If you have unprotected 4 days after getting the depo shot can you get pregnant.?

Short answer is yes.: If you had the injection in the first five days of your menstrual cycle, it should start working 24 hours post-injection. If you had the injection after the first five days of your cycle, it takes 14 days to work. No form of contraception is 100% effective, so pregnancy is always possible with sexual intercourse, but Depo is typically very effective. Only condoms prevent STI's! Read more

If: If a woman is having regular cycles the chance of becoming pregnant at the onset of her period is less than 1%. However, women often have vaginal bleeding not representing menstruation, that may be mistaken for a period and conception can occur at these times. This type of bleeding can arise from the cervix, complications of pregnancy and other uterine sources besides menstruation. Irregular or unpredictable bleeding after a course of depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is not uncommon and ovulation can occur before or after menstruation resumes. So you could indeed be pregnant. Best course would be to check a pregnancy test and find out. Read more

Depo and pregnancy: The package insert for depo mentions that it will work for 3 months - (12 weeks) but the insert mentions 13 weeks. Other literature mentions effectiveness over 12-14 weeks. Now from a practical point - its best to keep on a schedule - every 12 weeks. However if you are a day late you are likely still protected. Hope that helps Read more

Pregnancy test: Ovulation must occur in order for a pregnancy to occur. Unfortunately, after stopping Depo Provera it can take several months to even over one year for a woman's body to resume regular ovulation, and therefore regular periods. If you have any other symptoms or are concerned you may be pregnant at this time, take a home urine pregnancy test. Read more

Can u get pregnant right after a missed depo shot?

Might take a while.: "After stopping Depo-Provera, it can take an average of four to ten months to get pregnant. It will take up to two years from the date of your last Depo-Provera shot for your chances of getting pregnant to get back to that of a woman who has never had the shot. " REF: http://www.

Can I get pregnant if I only had the depo shot once in November in still bleeding?

Yes.: Although depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) is intended to provide birth control for 13 weeks per injection it may decrease your chance of pregnancy for much longer. When your body returns to a normal menstrual cycle then your chance of pregnancy is probably back to normal. This can sometimes take 6-12 months. Hope this helps. Read more

If I got my depo shot July 9th, 2015 what's the latest day I can go get my next injection without getting pregnant? October 9th?

Depo timing: Depot provera (medroxyprogesterone) is indicated for 90 days - so you would be due prior to 10/9/2015. However since you are at the end of the dose - I would not push the timing much beyond that day as the levels are already on the low side. If you delay you run the risk of getting pregnant Read more

No Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone): Can make you have irregular bleeding in the first few months of the injection. You may need another method of contraception (e.g. condoms) until your period completely goes away and stays away for 2-3 months in a row. Then you are protected from pregnancy. Read more

Hi I've had 2 boys and I only had 2 injections of depo shot, I'm just coming off it now end february. I really wanna get pregnant again soon ideas?

Try: The Depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot is the one birth control method that can prolong INFERTILITY past the time the effective date ends. It's completely possible to ovulate and get pregnant right away now, but it's also possible that it might take a few months. If you're ready to get pregnant, then okay to have unprotected intercourse starting now. Read more

I was supposed to get my depo shot on September 1. It is now the 27 and I am feeling awfully weird and nauseous. What could it be? Can I be pregnant?

I was supposed to get my depo shot on September 1. It is now the 27 and I am feeling awfully weird and nauseous. What could it be? Can I be pregnant?

Pregnant or not: Have you been sexually active during the time when you were "off" of the shot? Then you could be pregnant. The best test is the beta chain of human chorionic gonadotropin. It is elevated enough to be detected within 5 days after the ovum is fertilized. Read more
