How can I get pregnant after using Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

A little wait. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is long acting and so it can take a while to wear off. Typically is can last 6-9 months after the last dose but sometimes it can stay effective much longer than that. If you are not getting periods 6 months after stopping it your doctor can run some tests to check your own hormones and see if you are able to get pregnant.
A little patience. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) prevents pregnancy by suppressing ovulation, and it is meant to do this for three months after the injection. Following the initial three months, it can sometimes take another six to nine months for a woman to start ovulating regularly again. You can become pregnant, but you will need to be patient.

On October 1 I had a still born. On October 13 I received metformin 2, 000 mg and Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). On the 19 I had intercourse. Can I get pregnant?

Highly unlikely. At least for the next 3 months. By the 19th, the depo-medroxyprogesterone had already primed your hypothalamus-pituitary-ovary pathway, tricking your brain into thinking you were already pregnant. So, your ovarian follicles aren't going to pop out eggs, and your uterus is not going to build up its endometrial lining key for implantation. You may have some spotting, or stop menstruating for a while. Read more...

Yes. You may not have any bleeding PRIOR TO the first time you ovulate after Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone). Unless you are pregnant, you should have a period AFTER each time you ovulate.

However, you can still 'try' to get pregnant anytime you are ready. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is not known to harm baby. Read more...
