Depo. Do pregnancy test, if + then pregnant. Initially you may have irregular bleeding, eventually you won't have preriods (most people don't have period by 6-18 months of use). Should not be on depo for more than 2 years, and should not smoke (smoking increases risk for blood clots). Period will return after you stop it (may take a few months). Read more...

Been off the Depo-Provera shot for 4-5 months and am having irregular bleeding (dif dates each month). When can I try to get pregnant? What's my chances now?

Varies. After the Depo shot, it can take up to a year to become fertile again. However, for some, they can get pregnant immediately after their first missed dose of Depo (lasts 90 days). So, it is tough to say exactly what your chances are. With irregular bleeding however, it may be difficult to time your ovulation. I'd advise discussing this further with your doctor if this is your desire. Best wishes. Read more...

I got my first Depo-Provera shot on the same day my period was due I still have not gotten my period or any bleeding I am 13 days late now could I be pregnant?

No. Typically most offices will administer a pregnancy test before giving a woman the depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. It's possible that if you had sex a few days before you got the shot that you are pregnant. If worried, then consider a home pregnancy test, just to be sure. Normal for the shot to cause absence of periods entirely, though, that's a known side effect of the medication. Read more...

Depo bleeding. Depo can cause irregular timed bleeding especially early on. Like most birth control it is not 100% effective. Its more like 95-97%, which means a few women do conceive on it. I would check a pregnancy test to be certain. Read more...

Haven't had my period or any bleeding on the Depo-Provera shot and I had the 3rd dose of it. Can I still get pregnant?

Birth Control Works. If you are taking your shots on a timely manner and are not having menstrual periods it is very unlikely that you can become pregnant. Read more...
Unlikely. All contraceptives have some failure rate, so we can't promise you anything, but depo's failure rate is around 0.3%, which makes pregnancy while on it super-unlikely. The fact that you haven't had any bleeding while on it implies that you likely aren't ovulating, either, making your chances pretty small. Read more...

If I have sex while on the Depo-Provera shot and bleeding without protection can I get pregnant?

We never say. You can't get pregnant, but if current on depo-provera it is low probability, bleeding as well is not conducive to the traveling sperm. If concerned check a upt in 2-3 weeks but if on birth control effectively, the bleeding does not increase chances. Good luck. Read more...
