Depo-Provera shot?: One can get her Depo-Provera after 11 weeks, and not have to wait for the 12th week. That means getting her shot a week early so she never has to worry about being late for her next shot. Depo-Provera is usually scheduled for every 3 months (every 13 weeks, but getting the shot every 11 to 13 weeks is ok too). The last shot is still working, even if a woman is a few days late for her next shot. ...Read more

If my depo was due on Tuesday (4/21) had sex two days later (didn't get the shot yet) was I still protected even after the two days?

If my depo was due on Tuesday (4/21) had sex two days later (didn't get the shot yet) was I still protected even after the two days?

Still protected: The shot does not automatically stop after 90 days. It is unlikely that a woman would conceive in the fourth month after a depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection. There would be no significant increase in the chance of conceiving by being only two days late for the next shot. ...Read more

Irregular bleeding: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I just got the 3rd injection of the Depo-Provera shot. Had sex a day later and again two days later. A week later I'm seeing discharge. How likely am I preg?

Unlikely: The Depo-Provera shot is quite effective with a failure rate of less than 1% to 2%. Your chance for conceiving while using the shot is very low - but not zero. If there is a question, then take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

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

I had sex two days after my STD treatment do I still have it I used a condom and my pains are gone I just still have discharge and a foul odor my doctor never told me I had to wait seven days I got a shot and one pill

I had sex two days after my STD treatment do I still have it I used a condom and my pains are gone I just still have discharge and a foul odor my doctor never told me I had to wait seven days I got a shot and one pill

Return to the doctor: I agree with Dr. Jackson. You probably did no harm by sex with a condom. But some things don't add up. Abdominal pain suggests pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), an advanced kind of gonorrhea or chlamydia, but PID usually needs more antibiotic than you had. And foul odor may mean additional infection like trichomonas or bacterial vaginosis. Your partner needs tests and treatment if not yet done. ...Read more

Yes: The recommendation is to get all three hpv vaccinations so you are protected from the most harmful hpv viruses. Please get the third dose so you will be protected. You don't know what the future will bring and it is best to be all the way protected! ...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

I missed a shot in may 2015 and had unprotected sex on July. I have symptoms of pregnancy but have been bleeding over two months. Could I be pregnant?

Maybe: Need to do home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg, unlikely you are pregnant. Bleeding such as you describe can be due to being off depo shot, but other causes also a concern. Need to see your gyn provider. Bleeding for 2 mo needs to be evaluated. Best of luck with this.

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

Is it okay to have sex while im spotting? I'm not pregnant but I am on the shot and I been bleeding for two weeks already.

Is it okay to have sex while im spotting? I'm not pregnant but I am on the shot and I been bleeding for two weeks already.

Yes: It is not harmful for you or your partner to have intercourse while you are spotting. The Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection commonly has irregular bleeding as one of its side effects. The longer you are on it, the lighter your menses will become. Some women stop having menses altogether. They will return once you have stopped the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone). ...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
