Apparently so. The reported effectiveness of Depo-Provera, a progesterone-type drug, injectable is reported at 99%, so your experience of getting pregnant on Depo is certainly rare. And as they say .... "if it happened once, it can happen again!" Check a pregnancy test or two, a week or two apart, and then review with your doctor if there are alternate methods of birth control for you ... ? also use a condom? Read more...
Yes, small chance. Statistically, the chance of getting pregnant while on Depo is 0.3%, or 3 in a 1000 women per year while on Depo will get pregnant. Since you got pregnant before on Depo, it sounds like a standard dose may not be sufficient to suppress ovulation in your body. I suggest a pregnancy test. If that is negative, please check your breasts for discharge and lumps, as that needs evaluation. Read more...

Weight gain, sore nipples, and at the end of my 3 months for my Depo-Provera shot...possible to be pregnant? I've been on the Depo-Provera for 2 1/2 years.

Yes, Possible. If you are having unprotected sex, pregnancy is possible regardless of your choice of contraception. Although Depo-Provera is an effective means of birth control, no method (pill, patch or condom) other than abstinence is 100% effective. As you may know, there are over-the-counter urine pregnancy tests available. I would suggest discussing this with your OB/GYN or the prescriber of your Depo. Read more...
