First time on the Depo-Provera shot, it expires in two weeks I was spotting while having sex can I get pregnant?

Depo lasts 14 weeks. While it is recommended you get your depo shot every 12 weeks, it should truly last 14 weeks. Depo commonly causes spotting, and this can be worse during or after intercourse. This side effect tends to get better over time. Best of luck! Read more...
Still protected. Irregular bleeding is very common with depoprovera, especially in the beginning, and that does not mean it is not effective. However, it is important to get your next shot on time. Read more...
I do not think so. If i understand the question, when you were given the depo shot, you were given an estimate of the duration that it would have a protective effect. You indicated that it was estimated that the protective effect would "last" for 2 more weeks beyond the time you had sex, but it is not clear whether you were spotting before the sex or afterwards. I suggest a pregnancy test to be sure. Read more...

I got my first Depo-Provera shot 2 weeks ago but a week later I had unprotected sex 8 or more times. Can I still get pregnant? Include background information that will enable doctors to answer your question.

If . If you waited 7 days until after your first shot to have unprotected sex, then you have a less than 1% of pregnancy. If you got the shot within the first 7 days of starting your period, you are protected against pregnancy immediately. If not, then you should use a back-up method of birth control such as a condom for the first 7 days after the shot - after that, you're good to go. Below i've attached more information about the depo shot that might answer any additional questions you may have. Good luck! Read more...

Need more info. When was your last shot? If it was 3 months ago or less, then chances are almost none. If your last shot was 10 months ago, chances are high. If your last shot was 10 months ago, then you are not really on it any more. Read more...
Not good. Of course, more information is needed. The monthly fecundity rate (e.g. Chances of pregnancy in a single cycle is about 20-30%). That's if you're not on anything or coming off of anything. In this scenario, that rate is probably going to be a lot lower. Read more...

First Depo-Provera shot end of august. Bled the entire time from aug to november so I decided to not redose. Cycle has not returned yet. Pregnant?

Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) pregnancy is unlikely but do an home pregnancy test. I suspect after so many months of bleeding and being on Depo that it will take several months for things to regulate. It is not unusual for some women to go 4-12 months without regular periods after Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone). Read more...

Depo & Pregnancy. While each injection of depo-provera is meant to last 3 months as a form of birth control, it can affect a woman's ability to conceive for up to 9 months.

That depends.
