Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone): A woman might become pregnant 3 to 4 months after the last Depo – Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. But it could take 6 months up to as long as two years. ...Read more
Have tried depo shot and seasonique. Both cause irregular, random bleeding. Enough needed to wear pad. Next step to try?
Different method: There are several other options. Depo and seasonique frequently cause irregular bleeding. The more traditional types of pills with monthly periods are less likely to cause irregular bleeding if taken right as with rings or patches. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD causes some irregular bleeding at first but then makes periods shorter and lighter and sometimes to the point that you don't bleed at all. Hope this helps ...Read more
I got my first Depo-Provera shot June 12 its due again but I'm not getting it what symptoms might I go though while the Depo-Provera wears off and my body regulates?
Bleeding: You can expect irregular periods for awhile. If you haven't been having periods it may take awhile for them to resume and they will probably be irregular at first. If you are not ready for pregnancy, use another method of contraception since you can conceive before you have that first period. ...Read more
Today is my last day on being the Depo-Provera shot for three months, how long will it take until it wears off? I want to get pregnant soon
3 months to 2 years: As there is variability depending on each individual patient. I would not recommend being pregnant at 16. At least finish your high school education or consider a vocational/technical school to give your future child a life with financial stability to be able to adequately provide for his or her needs. The average cost to raise a child from birth to age 18 is $241, 080. ...Read more
I'm virgin, only had two Depo-Provera shots, now off for 9 months. Menstrual is irregular when can I ovulate again? And when can this shot wear off?
Up to a year: Unfortunately, a couple of Depo-Provera shots may hang around in your system for up to a year. If you are having some irregular periods, then at least that says your system is "waking up" from being put to sleep... It is difficult to say whether or not you are having ovulatory cycles -- you could be now, but just with irregular periods. This will eventually straighten out. ...Read more
I had my first Depo-Provera Shot in june and As soon as it wears off I plan to get pregnant what are some tips or suggestions to help me get pregnant fast?
Healthy living: Over the next 3 months as your shot effectiveness wanes, start getting your body in excellent health. Eat right, start taking Folate (folic acid) supplement & exercise daily, don't get any STD's. Then when the time is right, your body will be most receptive to a pregnancy. Then you leave it up to God and sex to create life. Even without having been on a contraceptive, it is normal to take a year to conceive. ...Read more
My wife took the Depo-Provera shot once, its been almost a year and she has not been able. Too get pregnant? Does it take that long too wear off from 1 dose
Right away: You can start trying to conceive right away. Are you sure that's a good idea at 16 years of age? One should ideally finish high school and have a job allowing one to support a child, as children cost, over 18 years, on average over $250, 000. I notice celexa (citalopram). 16 years of age, a history of depression and a new baby are not a good combination. Consider waiting until you are older, more stable. ...Read more

Pregnant or depo-provera side effects? I had sex on november 30th. My boyfriend didn't wear a condom for the first part of sex but had one on by the end. I got the depo-provera shot on december 13th, the same week I was supposed to get my period. It is no
Many: Many women do not have a period on the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. In fact, many women choose this method of birth control based on this side effect. Since you have taken multiple recent pregnancy tests which have all been negative, you are most likely not pregnant and your missed period is due to the Depo-Provera shot. If you continue with the Depo-Provera shot receiving your dose on time every three months, you will have a less than 1% chance of becoming pregnant - about the same odds as having your tubes tied. ...Read more
