Avatar n tn I have been on the depo provera for 2 and a half years now, I have a period every 3 month 10-14 days before im due my depo. I havnt had a period this time and i am due to get it in 2 days. Could i be pregnant?
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 f tn Hi! Depo very commonly causes irregular periods. If you were my patient, I would do a pregnancy test right away to be sure that is not the reason for the missed period. 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!

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 I had the depo shot 3 times last year-june, sept, & nov. I was very worried about getting my period back but finally i got it in may. give it time. My husband and i have been trying to conceieve since nov but no luck. I have read lots of stories about pregnany taking 1-3 years after your last shot (even thogh i was told 6-12 months) I have been hoping that now that i finally got my period back that it is a sign that i am ready. Good luck to you!

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?
Avatar m tn I just got a shot of depo-provera birth control 3 days ago and my period was supposed to start yesterday and it hasn't. I am sexually active and the last time I had sex was on my period last month and we used condoms but I wasn't on birth control and my partner did not go all the way. 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.
273379 tn?1213044686 Unfortunately that pregnancy ended in miscarriage but that was nothing to do with being on depo previously. I then fell pg again within 3 cycles and am due any day. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I used it for over 5 years. Sadly my pregnancy ended up in a m/c (unrelated to depo, it's been about four years.. hubby was using the pull out method until we were ready to try) and now I'm ttc again.
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 Hey i was on depo provera from april until september of last year in which time my periods stopped. I had my last injection september seven months ago as me and my partner decided we'd get my periods back and try for a baby after our holiday next month. We already have a 18month old son. Ive still not had my periods back but the past few days ive been sufferering from sore hard breasts. I did a pregnancy test yesterday but it was negative. What could be causing it?

911955 tn?1247337027 I would like to ask if any1 had trouble with Depo Provera shot i took 1 shoot in Aug 2006 and my next shoot was due in Nov 2006 but i did not like it so i told my Doc since i was not with any1 at the time and i did not need the shoot .so she gave me birth control told me to start them that day but i never bc like i said i was not with any1 so i still never started the pill so it took me until jan 08 to start my a period back.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Depo vera is injected every 12 weeks while the contraceptive has the power to prevent conception up to 14 weeks, the injections are usually given every 12 weeks to ensure that there is no gap in the effectiveness of the birth control between shots. If such a schedule is maintained, pregnancy while on Depo-Provera is extremely rare. Since your girlfriend was not on taking it regularly there might have been a period when she had sex while not on depo.

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?!
