Signs Of Pregnancy While On Depo Provera Shot
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 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

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.

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

Not likely: Depoprovera is one of the most effective forms of birth control as long as you get the shot every 3 months as directed. Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect. 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
I had sex 3 weeks b4 Depo-Provera shot. But been having signs of pregnancy and been having movements lower on my stomach. Haven't had my period. What is it?
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. Depo-Provera can make you feel a little bit pregnant because it is Progesterone, one of the hormones that goes high during pregnancy. That is how it got its name.

Is the Depo-Provera shot affective as soon as taken and what are the chances of pregnancy while on Depo-Provera just started?
Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone): Hopefully you had the Depo-Provera shot during your period because it sounds like your first one. It would be unlikely that you would ovulate and become pregnant. I always tell my patients to use a back up method such as condoms for the first two weeks with any new method. When in doubt, take a pregnancy test and see your doctor. ...Read more
Do you need to worry about pregnancy while on Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) if you get all shots on time and no more period?
I am not quite: Sure what you are asking? If you are pregnant and have had Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) - let your gynecologist know promptly. If you wish to become pregnant you will of course need to stop the depo. If this hasn't addressed your concern - please clarify and re-ask question. Take care. ...Read more

I'm on the Depo shot for 4 years and having pregnancy symptoms. I have regular sex with my boyfriend but he always pulls out. Chances being pregnant?
Pretty Good: No birth control is perfect. "Pulling out" is not a reliable way to prevent pregnancy. Try an early pregnancy test from the drugstore. If negative, wait a week and repeat the test. If positive, see your OBGyn. If it turns out you're not pregnant then something else is going on. Check it out. Buy your boyfriend a box of condoms. Tell him "No glove - no love." ...Read more
