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

I have been on Depo-Provera shot for four years, and now I am having pregnancy scares? Can that happens
Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone): I assume your pregnancy scares are because you are not having periods. It is very common for women on Depo shots to not have periods. Depo is a very reliable form of birth control. In fact it usually takes over a year after the shots have stopped for woman to become fertile again. So if you are getting your shots every 3 months you should be fine. ...Read more

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.
