Avatar f tn Hi ladies. My last depo provera shot ran out in november and i never got it renewed as i was having bad side effects and i wanted to come off all contraceptives to let my body sort itself out. Its now nearly april and i havnt had any signs of a period apart from stomach cramps now andagain. I was just wondering if anyone had any information for me as im getting a little bit worried/frustrated. Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn I was on depo vera and I had sex 2 weeks after like my doctor said I could. I was off it for 2 years before I finally got pregnant. I dont advise that type of birth control just because I gained soooo much wait and I worked out at the gym. Also caused alot of health problems for me and once I was ready to have a baby it took me forever!!

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 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.
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 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 n tn No matter how long you are on it, it can take 12-18 months to fully get depo provera out of your system. I had a hard time after depo, my body started going through withdrawls of the drug and I had a cyst on my ovary from depo which was causing me not to ovulate.
