I use the pee stick to see of am ovalating. I did 2 tests. Two days. I had sex that 2 days. I had depo shot last may 2015 would I get pregnant?

Depo-Provera lasts..: A Depo-Provera shot lasts 3 months, which means a woman is no longer protected against pregnancy if it has been longer than 3 months since the last shot. May 2015 was eleven months ago. Thus, if not wanting to get pregnant, one must stop having sex until a reliable form of birth control (contraception) is started. ...Read more

Yes: If it is in the fertile part of your cycle you could get pregnant. You are not protected 2 days after a Depo Shot. You did not say how long it had been since you had your last shot before now. It is highly unusual for women to ovulate for 6-12 months after stopping Depo. ...Read more

I'm on the Depo-Provera shot and every time I have sex the next two days I start to bleed and I jost came off my period what does this means?

Possibly infection: Bleeding after sex is probably not related to the Depo-Provera shot. Your cervix may be irritated from a vaginal or cervical infection. Some of these infections tend to flareup after sex, due to the man's semen raising the vaginal ph. See your doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Normal depo effect: Irregular periods are the norm on depoprovera. Many patients have no periods at all. Others will experience irregular menstrual bleeding. This is how Depo-Provera works. If you are not satisfied with the bleeding pattern on Depo-Provera then consider using a different birth control method. ...Read more

I got my Depo shot early, like a week or two early and I after I got it, I had unprotected sex, could I be pregnant??

Depoprovera: Depoprovera is a highly effective birth control method. It sounds like you were already on it and then just got a shot one week early. This means you were already on birth control when you had sex making the risk of pregnancy incredibly low. Getting a Depo shot early would not decrease the effectiveness. ...Read more

Have been on Depo-Provera shot for two months. After sex today I noticed a light pink discharge. What is it?

Spotting: Many women experience spotting after intercourse caused by inflammation of the cervix or you may be having some spotting due to hormonal changes from Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone). It is also possible you have an endocervical polyp, a benign skin tag which protrudes from the cervix and can bleed after intercourse. See your healthcare provider to determine why you are bleeding. ...Read more

I am just getting ready to take my second shot of Depo-Provera the first two months I was on it I bled basically the whole time the third month I didn t have hardly any bleeding anytime my boyfriend and I had sex he pulled out I realize that's not all that

I am just getting ready to take my second shot of Depo-Provera the first two months I was on it I bled basically the whole time the third month I didn t have hardly any bleeding anytime my boyfriend and I had sex he pulled out I realize that's not all that

What's your question: Not sure what you are asking here. I can tell you that your bleeding will probably stop with continued Depo-Provera shots. It doesn't for everyone, but for most it does. The other comment I have is that your boyfriend doesn't need to pull out. You are on a reliable form of birth control (depo). If you are worried about stds you should use condoms in addition. Pulling out doesn't help with that. ...Read more

Very unlikely...: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is very effective contraception. If you aren't late getting your third injection, its highly unlikely that you are pregnant. The chance isn't zero but its about as close to zero as your doctor can make it. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have been on the Depo-Provera shot for two years now and I missed my last shot and I have had unprotected sex can I be pregnant? I took a test and it was negative

I have been on the Depo-Provera shot for two years now and I missed my last shot and I have had unprotected sex can I be pregnant? I took a test and it was negative

Depo: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is a great form of birth control since if you get the shot on time every 3 months, you have a less than 1% chance of getting pregnant. If you miss a shot, however, the risk of pregnancy goes up with unprotected sex. The accuracy of the test you took depends on when you think you might have gotten pregnant. Home pregnancy tests are only 97% accurate if taken 5-6 weeks after your last normal period (3-4 weeks after you think you may have conceived if you do not have a regular period). Depending on when your unprotected sex was, you may want to wait until it's been 3-4 weeks and take another test. Or, you can call your doctor and have them test you since doctors' pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy a week or two earlier than the home pregnancy test. ...Read more

Depo shot #2. had sex beginning of January. Weeks later I have brown discharge and blood. I've been bleeding for two weeks now. Pregnant or no?

It's very unlikely: That you're pregnant after 2 doses of depo shot. Irregular bleeding is the most common side effect of the deep shot. This will improve with time. However, I encourage you to do a "peace of mind" pregnancy test. Just to be on the safe side--Dr. Anne ...Read more

First time on the Depo-Provera shot, it expires in two weeks I was spotting while having sex can I get pregnant?

First time on the Depo-Provera shot, it expires in two weeks I was spotting while having sex can I get pregnant?

I do not think so: If I understand the question, when you were given the Depo-Provera shot, you were given an estimate of the duration that it would have a protective effect. You indicated that it was estimated that the protective effect would "last" for 2 more weeks beyond the time you had sex, but it is not clear whether you were spotting before the sex or afterwards. I suggest a pregnancy test to be sure. ...Read more
