Avatar n tn If you are not post your due date, the chances of a pregnancy are unlikely, though you may still confirm by running a home pregnancy test (urine based) about 3 weeks after an alleged intercourse. Most women experience irregular periods on depo-shots and delay in periods may not be something to worry about. Hope this helps. Take care!

Avatar f tn Hi I'm 17 and I was wondering if its normal to be back on your regular periods and not be able conceive for a while, how long will it possibly take to conceive after my periods come back ?
Avatar m tn I just went to the GYN and got my annual pelvic exam and my first shot of depo and so far everything has been okay. However, once I didn't get my period I started to worry and I took a pregnancy test just in case and it did come out negative. But I'm still freaking out since I am only 18 and really do not want to be pregnant. So is it normal to be late for your period after getting the shot? or should I take another test? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hello, Depo-Provera is a long-acting progestin (hormone) form of birth control. If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn Hi! I recently got the Depo Provera shot a couple weeks ago, and it is was within the 5-7 days before my period of which was supposed to be on the 23rd of last month.. And I still haven't gotten my period, I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, I'm just really worried maybe the test was wrong, or is it normal to have a really late period after having your first shot?
505857 tn?1329685117 I was on depo for 3 yrs, and luckily got AF the first month off depo. Personally, I believe if you are having regular periods, you need to buy some ovulation predictor tests, and see if your even ovulating. They're pretty expensive but you get alot of them, just test each day....etc. what the directions say on the box. That way you'll know if it's because your not ovulating... or whatnot.
Avatar f tn Hello, There may be amenorrhea for several months or irregularity of periods after stopping the depo shots. If you want to try for conception, try having intercourse every month around your ovulation days as it is the best time for conceiving. Ovulation is the release of a single, mature egg from a follicle that developed in the ovary. It usually occurs regularly, around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle.
Avatar n tn It could take a few months or up to a year. Just depend on your body.
Avatar f tn If the test is negative, I would chalk it up to the Depo shot and wait and see what happens during the next few months. Hope this helps!
983134 tn?1248702843 i have been ttc for 2 years after being on depo for 2 and a half years and i blame depo 100%, i had irregular periods for months after coming off of it, pains etc. It is only now i'm getting a normal 28-32day cycle, this also causes bone damage the longer the use of depo the more prolonged the problems a lot of woman may agree with me on this one.
Avatar n tn I have been on Depo Provera for 13 years. I have not had a period in probably 10 years or longer. I got the flu and started taking flu medicine and two days later all of the sudden - a period. I am freaking out. What would cause a sudden period after such a long absence? I want it to go away NOW. Did the flu medicine kill my depo shot?

Avatar f tn You should consult with your doctor if you are interested in TTC at this time and you have not yet resumed having periods after your Depo. It can take quite a while to resume your regular cycle.

Avatar n tn I was on the Depo-Provera injection for about 2 year and a half and I have just gotten off the injection a couple of months ago. I got my first period and I have not gotten my second and it has been about 3 months. I have gone to my doctor had a blood test and a vaginal ultrasound to make sure I was not preg and he put me on Provera for 10days. I have been on the medication for 5 days and I have not even spotted or felt no cramps.
Avatar n tn I've been on Depo Provera for 3 years now and I never get my period. I am sexually active but always have had regular clear discharge. For about 5 days I've been having light brown discharge. I didn't know if this has happened to anyone else or if anyone knows what this could mean?
Avatar f tn I have been on Depo-provera for nearly two months now, and have been on several other birth controls to try and regulate my period. None of the pills ever worked, I continued to bleed irregularly with heavy blood flow, and periods lasting up to 8 weeks. My doctor and I tried LUPRON to stop my periods, and it worked well for about six months. Due to insurance refusing to pay, I switched to Depo-Provera. I started bleeding two weeks ago, with all the sypmtoms of a regular period.
Avatar f tn Hi. I had my last depo shot in august and I just finnished my first 10days of provera on oct. 4 and I still havent had a period yet. I know sometimes it can take up to 14 days after but Im well over my 14 days. So my question is why havent I had a period yet? And could it be that the shot is still in my system or is the provera meant to over-power it? Please Help?!
737515 tn?1252556023 Is it possible to get pregnant after one depo provera injection. My boyfriend and I do not use any other method of protection and he does not pulll out because we have been together for a while and the risk of STD's is not there. I missed my period 3 weeks ago and im a bit worried. I am normally very regular.I know Depo can stop periods all together but when i used to recieve depo years ago i still had a period :/ Im currently spotting and crampy.
Avatar n tn The docotors believe I may have a progesterone problem due to Depo Provera. I was on Depo for 6 years and went off the shot in Sept. Does anyone know if the effects of this shot can linger and cause lower progesterone levels?
Avatar n tn Are you talking about the Depo-Provera injection (contraceptive injection that can take periods off completly)?
Avatar n tn Hi my name is Marie and i was on depo provera in May 07 and i had my periods in december. It was regular and my last period was in March 08. Since then i never got my periods again. Im confused and lost. Sometimes i take pregnancy tests and they all come out negative. So i really dont know what's the cause. I really need some help and answers! Recently i had sex with my boyfriend and my periods are still not here. But i feel tired and moody from time to times.
Avatar f tn im 18 and got my first depo shot a month ago. my doctor thought it would be a good idea to stop my periods as i am low in iron. But i started bleeding a few days ago and i'm really worried its going to last for ages. I'm hating it. I was previously on the pill and my periods were irregular but only lasted 5 days. has anybody had good experiences with bleeding while on depo? I'm freaking out.
