I'm having signs if pregnancy but I am on Depo-Provera. Can this be right? Can I be pregnant?

Not likely pregnant: Hello Heather,

If you are on Depo-Provera or 'the shot', then you are feeling the effects of Progesterone. This is the same hormone that is produced by the ovaries after ovulation. So, to have similar symptoms is altogether normal and explainable. Do not worry, Depo-provera is 99+% effective in preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

What are signs of pregnancy when you're on the Depo-Provera shot? Are they different from normal signs?

Yes: Since skipping periods is normal on Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) it is not necessarily a sign of pregnancy. Weight gain is also common with Depo and not necessarily associated with pregnancy. Nausea is not usually associated with Depo but is common with pregnancy. If you think you might be pregnant, do a pregnancy test. While it is very uncommon to conceive on Depo, all methods do have failures. ...Read more

I'm 4 months late on my period but have had 3 negative pregnancy tests and no signs of pregnancy. What is wrong with me? I used to be on Depo-Provera too.

I'm 4 months late on my period but have had 3 negative pregnancy tests and no signs of pregnancy. What is wrong with me? I used to be on Depo-Provera too.

Depo: What was the reason for the Depo-Provera - irregular periods or for contraception. If you have a history of irregular periods, then now that you are off depo, the irregularity might be the issue. Also remember that Depo-Provera lasts about 12-15wks, so depending on when your last Depo-Provera was, the effect could still be present. Good health. ...Read more

I been on the Depo-Provera shot for almost a year now and I haven't had any periods but I woke up this morning my period was on. Is this a sign of pregnancy?

I been on the Depo-Provera shot for almost a year now and I haven't had any periods but I woke up this morning my period was on. Is this a sign of pregnancy?

Can't really tell: Depoprovera works by suppressing the release of pituitary gonadotropin hormones that normally keep menstrual cycles regular. Once the depo's suppression is removed, the normal ovulatory cycle should resume (but it's not predictable exactly when). Experts on healthtap have mentioned 9-18 months as the time range. A urine pregnancy test can tell if there's a pregnancy, three weeks after ovulation. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex. I took the morning after pill. I also got the Depo-Provera shot the next day but I've been very sick with pregnancy signs.

Plan B: Hi, It depends on how soon you have taken the plan B pills the failure rate is between 5-15%, therefore there is a good chance that you are pregnant, Also Depo doesn't prevent pregnancy right away. I suggest that you see a Gynecologist as soon as possible. Good luck. ...Read more

If: If you are on the Depo-Provera shot and you are not yet due for your next one, then you are still protected against pregnancy 99% of the time. It is more likely that you have a bladder infection or another more common problem. You should see your doctor for your symptoms. You may also want to discuss other birth control options besides the Depo-Provera shot since you did not like the side effects you experienced. Good luck! ...Read more

I got 1 Depo-Provera shot after it expire my breast sore, spotting brown, negative pregnancy test. Is it sign getting Depo-Provera out system?

Failure rates are 1-3%. After stopping it your cycles may take awhile to go back to normal. If you sexually active restart it or use another method. ...Read more

Depo and pregnant: If you use depo-provera as a birth control method, it works by making the endometrial lining very thin and less likely to support a pregnancy. However, if you took it for < a month, you could be pregnant. You should see a provider as soon as possible to confirm what is going on. ...Read more

Its possible: Depo-Provera has a very low pregnancy rate but it's not zero. If you are worried, get a pregnancy test.
