Had my first Depo-Provera shot at the end of feb. Had a light period on mar 3 and was sexually active mar15 -18 (regular ovulation dates). Can I be pregnant?

PROBABLY NOT. The depo should have blocked your ovulation in march, so i doubt that you are pregnant. You should not get periods on depo, so I am sure that you are worried. Try an at home preg test to make sure. Depo is very effective birth control. Read more...

I got the Depo-Provera shot feb. No period march. Got a period/spotting in april. I am sexually active w/ protection. Can I be pregnant if I got my period?

Not likely. Depo-provera is very good at preventing pregnancy so presuming you are not pregnant when you received the shot in february, it is unlikely that you would be at this point. Erratic bleeding and even loss of your period altogether is a fairly common side effect of depo-provera. For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.Org. Read more...

I have been off Depo-Provera for 3 weeks now. Me and my husband are sexually active. I haven't had a period return yet. What does this mean?
