If I have unprotected sex after I miss my Depo-Provera shot can I be pregnant?

It's possible. Even with birth control measures in place, it's not 100% impossible to get pregnant. If you were having unprotected sex and were overdue for a Depo shot, I'd advise doing a home pregnancy test.

Possible. Unprotected sex is always a risk for pregnancy as well as sexually transmitted diseases. If you missed a few pills, it is possible. Home pregnancy test about 3 wks or more after sex would help determine if you are pregnant. Read more...

Watery clear discharge& it feel like my period coming but it turn a little bit white &i just miss my Depo-Provera shot& I had unprotected sex am im pregnant?

Get tested. The only way to determine if you are pregnant, even in the best of circumstances (timely depo, iud, tubal ligation, ocps, etc) is to have a pregnancy test asap. This could be urine (cheap and accurate) and blood HCG level (the gold standard) its worth doing a urine test every 48 hours as the HCG levels in the blood double in that time and the numbers rise fast enough that any urine preg test works.

My panties keep feeling wet, and I had unprotected sex and I missed my Depo-Provera shot and I'm young does that mean I'm fertile?

Definitely fertile. All women are considered fertile unless they are known otherwise to be infertile. If you are having unprotected sex and missing depot shots it is only a matter of time before you prove your fertility. If you don't want to be pregnant use some form of protection. Read more...

If you are 17 and you missed a Depo-Provera shot and you only took Depo-Provera once and you had unprotected sex are you more fertile since u missed depo?

Depends. Depo-provera is a method of contraception. Thus, chance of conceiving is greater when one discontinues depo-provera compared to being on depo-provera. However, if comparing chance of conceiving before and after taking depo-provera, then fertility is unchanged factoring in age. In other words, one is not more fertile after undergoing depo=provera compared to before going on contraception. Read more...

If I took only one Depo-Provera shot and missed the next one haven't got a period but I have been having unprotected sex did I ovulate yet?

Impossible to say. The return of ovulation after discontinuing Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is hard to predict - typically it's longer to return the more injections you have received. It's impossible for me to say if you have ovulated yet. Read more...

Depo shot. If you received the shot (150mcg) at the right time in your cycel - ie just as your period was starting - it should have protected you. That is the nice thing with the shot - its protective once its dosed. However, if you got the shot at any other time it might not work until your next cycle. The best thing to do is check a pregnancy test. Read more...

Problem. I am a physician that does not like depo shots for most women. I did early but found a problem. Like you, they were not sure if their control was still in effect at the end of the cycle do to missed periods. You are concerned about early instead of 3 months but this was a real problem and resulted in frequent pregnancy tests. Read more...
