Depo and pregnancy: In theory, you could become pregnant if you simply don't get your Depo shot on time. However, it is possible that it will take a lot of time for your regular ovulatory cycle to return. Some people take more than a year to restart regular menstrual periods, some start right away. Consider stopping Depo now and using some other form of birth control so you can have more control over timing. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Fertility depends: Upon a number of things. One critical issue is age, and I did not see age listed. The majority of women will need about 3 months before cycles will become regular, and therefore the chance of ovulating during that time is lower. Some women in their twenties are able to conceive almost immediately and those in their 30s may take a little longer. Take prenatal vitamins, keep a log of your menses. ...Read more

How long should it take a 20 yr old to get pregnant while having unprtotected sex weekly, and how long after stopping depo?

Unknown: Depot can have an 18 month delay in fertility for some women. In general , there is a 15 percent chance of getting pregnant each cycle. After one year, 85 out of 100 couples will have had a pos preg test. In the next 2 years, 10 more couples will get pregnant. So, 95 percent of couples will get pregnant in 3 years. I recommend that couples try for one year. If no pregnancy occurs, then get check. ...Read more

How long after stopping Depo-Provera does it take to get pregnant? I only had two shots and stopped a little over 6 months ago

Immediately: We were always taught that it can take up to a year after depo to become pregnant. What we know now is you are most fertile after the depo is stopped. So that first month after the first skipped dose, you are the most fertile. This is because the ovaries are no longer being supressed. ...Read more

Consider doctor: Depending on what your age is, if you have been trying to conceive for more than a year, then you should probably look at consulting with a fertility specialist to see if there is a medical problem. If you are over 35 years of age, then you should be seeking expert advice after 6 months of non-pregnancy. ...Read more

How often do women get pregnant within the first four months of stopping Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

How often do women get pregnant within the first four months of stopping Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

It depends: If you mean you last shot was 4 months ago, pregnancy is unlikely, but the drug label does not exclude the possibility. If you mean 4 months since you were due for a shot, or 7 months since the last one, the chances are higher. When stopping depoprovera, you should use barrier protection if you do not desire pregnancy. ...Read more

4 month -year: 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. So, basically, four months after stopping the shot, your chances will start to increase. ...Read more

Seven months ago i was due to get the Depo-Provera shot but i decided not to. I have not had a period since stopping. Can i be pregnant?

Maybe but...: If a woman is having sex, pregnancy is always a possibility. So running a home urine pregnancy test is a good idea. But missing periods is very common after use of depo-provera. The longer a woman has been on it, the longer it may take for the periods to get back to normal. Up to 18 months can be normal. Having additional testing may be a good idea depending on other details of your situation. ...Read more

Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone): It is not uncommon for some women to go as long as 18 months after stopping Depo before they start having a period. Since you only started menstruating 6 months ago, that would be when your count would start. It is not considered infertility until you have been trying to conceive for one year (and your periods are regular. If you are healthy, be patient and wait for your body to find its rythym ...Read more

With the unpredictable ovulations these women may become pregnant any time. ...Read more
