I was on Depo-Provera and I've been off for a year and still have not had a period can I still get pregnant?

Eventually. Depo-provera is very good birth control. A single injection is effective for at least 3 months - however, it may work for up to 18 months. It is not unusual for the cycles to return to normal after stopping depo-provera, but again it may take up to 18 months for you to begin cycling again. Once you start ovulating (cycling), your fertility will be the same as it was before the shot.

Depo shot. Depoprovera can last a few months in the system after the last dose. It can take even up to 18 months to regain fertility after the last shot. Now that you are not using it, the body is regaining the tissues that lies inside the uterus and that could be the cause of your symptom. However always consider pregnancy if you are not using contraception. Read more...

I didn't get Depo-Provera shot in dec, had some spotting in march, and been having unprotected sex, and still haven't had a period could I be pregnant?

Yes. I assume your last depo shot was in sept. Sometimes it can take 3-6 months for your periods to return to normal after stopping depoprovera (6-9 months from last shot). You will release an egg or ovulate before your first period, so you should consider yourself fertile now. Check an over the counter pregnancy test. If it is negative and you do not wish to become pregnant, start using birth control. Read more...

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, he nutted in me I have been on Depo-Provera for a year & some months I missed my appointment in march and had a period the end of march, could I be pregnant?

If . If you did not receive the depo shot you were due for in march and restarted your period, then you are definitely at risk for pregnancy. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Good luck! Read more...
