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?
Avatar f tn I miscarried June 16, 2010 and got on the Depo Shot the next day. I have not had a period since before I got pregnant (9 months ago). I did not get my shot that was due in September and now I am having symptoms of pregnancy again. What are the chances of me being pregnant this soon?
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 I was a little worried the last couple of days about being pregnant so I took a Home Pregnancy Test and it was negative. Being on Depo birth control would not effect a home pregnancy test would it? I made an appointment for Friday.
Avatar n tn I heard that depo provera makes all pregnancy tests posative, is that true? I don't want to purchase one until i kno if I will be wasteing my money or not. Please help.
Avatar n tn I am on Depo provera I got my first injection in February and my second in May I was due for a 3rd injection in August but did not get it until the end of September and I was bleeding when I went in now I think in pregnant what effects would the depo have.

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.

She has severe back problems due to previous pregnancy and was also taking Neurontin what effects can the to drugs have on our baby???? Please help to ease our minds!!
1636874 tn?1311551031 I'm planning on getting the Depo shot this Friday, the 18th of March, and I'm a bit of worry wort. I was wondering, with the slight chance of me being pregnant, if I got the shot not even a week after "conception". Would it spontaneously abort? Would it hurt me? Would it keep the baby but give it birth defects? I'm not really sure and I would like my question answered because I am very worried. We used the condoms properly, no breaks or slippage. So, I highly doubt I am pregnant.
Avatar f tn Depo is very very affective, but if u do want to get preg then u should get off depo cause it messes u up. I was on depo for a year and a couple of months and I didn't get my period at all and now I. Off depo ad still haven't gotten my period. Me and my boy friend are TTC but I don't think I can cause I haven't had a period.
Avatar n tn Just from my experence I was on depo shot and you have signs of pregnancy and are not pregnant and there is no way possiable you could feel you baby kick so soon you don't start feeling any movement until your about 4months pregnant I had a baby about 5months ago tomorrow is 5months and well I didn't actually really feel him move until I was 4months along maybe a lil ferther and I had a m/c on the depo shot the shot was in my systom but the shot killed the baby well anyways I don't think a baby
273379 tn?1213044686 I stopped taking the depo injection on August 16th and am in the process of trying for a baby. I'm a little scared as everything i've read about has stated i might not fall pregnant for another year. I haven't had any period as yet, but have lower cramps and tender breasts. What i would like to know is if anyone has fallen pregnant within 3 months of coming off the injection and am i better speaking to my doctor.
Avatar f tn why do you ask??? (BY the way, i've seen women get pg. on Loestren(sp?) and some others.) Depo is the only one i've heard of ppl not getting pg. easily on.
Avatar f tn Hi, I've been on depo provera for a about three years. I'm usually extremely careful and I usually always use condoms. The other day my boyfriend and I decided not to, at the spur-of-the-moment. I wonder, should I be safe to not use them? I mean, I really don't want to get pregnant, but the odds are so low, that I should be safe, right?
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 n tn when i first went on depo i did that. i chalk it up to my system clearing out. after a couple of months it stopped and i never had a period again until i stopped taking it all together of course.
Avatar f tn So I started Depo provera 2 weeks and 2 days ago and I had unprotected sex 7 days after the shot and I was worried and called my docter to see if.it.was going to be effective they said yes cuz its been a week & I jus had unprotected sex again the second week after taking depo but dis time he cummed in me but im kind kind of worried should I be? Ive felt growls in tummy I feel naseus somtimes & the day before yesterday I ate once & didnt wana eat again...
Avatar f tn I've been on Depo Provera for almost a year but i've decided to not get my next shot in two weeks i'm not wanting to get pregnant anytime soon but I'm wondering how long will it take for the Hormones to leave my body and what kind of side effects should I expect?
273379 tn?1213044686 What i would like to know is, is there a possibility i could be pregnant, how long does depo take to wear off and how long do these symptoms last after coming off depo and lastly i have been taking fertiliad is this any good and if not what can i do to speed up my chances of conceiving. Thanks for any help given!!
Avatar n tn I just took one shot of depo-provera and that too my doc never explained to me the side effects nor i would have NEVER had that injection...anyways...my depo shot ended in june 2009...except for july and august 09, from september 2009, my periods are on date..very regular thank god...can anyone tell me what could be the chances of getting pregnant...
Avatar n tn i took that stupid shot one time and didn't have a period for 10 months. Go to your local GNC and buy V I T E X. Its safe and it will make you ovulate and regulate you cycles. It really works. I took it for a week and my period started an I started ovulating. You can start right after... just take this pill once a day and it will incress your chances. I hope this helps.
