1-12 months: Ovulation can occur in the first month off depoprovera for some. For others it can take up to one year. If you do not want to be pregnant consider starting another birth control method ...Read more

Hello I had my first and last depo shot in June 2015 I did not get another since but I have had no period since then. Would I still ovulate without a period.

You can still: ovulate, but without a bleed it is likely that you have ongoing hormonal cycle fluctuations despite the Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) having "run out" 2 months ago. I would be careful with using alternative method of contraception right now if you do not wish to conceive. In the meantime, return to your GYN or family physician to find out whether you need another shot or oral contraceptive to reset your cycle. ...Read more

No: As long as you are getting the DepoProvera on time the chance of pregnancy is extremely low. You can do a pregnancy test if it will make you feel better but it isn't necessary. Depo normally starts out causing irregular bleeding and,as you continue using it, causes you to stop having periods. There is no reason to do ovulation predictor or pregnancy tests. Hope this reassures you. ...Read more

Got 3rd Depo-Provera shot 2/9/15. Never been late to get any. Had sex a couple times after But feel like I ovulated (discharge, mild pain). Could I get preg?

You should be fine : Having had 3 timely injections, it's not very likely that you ovulated. Also, "Less than 1 out of 100 women will get pregnant each year if they always use the birth control shot as directed." (http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-info/birth-control/birth-control-shot-depo-provera#sthash.v4PleX59.dpuf). So you should be fine. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Had my first Depo-Provera shot at the end of feb. Had a light period on mar 3 and was sexually active mar15 -18 (regular ovulation dates).. Can i be pregnant?

PROBABLY NOT: The depo should have blocked your ovulation in march, so i doubt that you are pregnant. You should not get periods on depo, so I am sure that you are worried. Try an at home preg test to make sure. Depo is very effective birth control. ...Read more
