Avatar f tn I ask because I've recently had two friends tell me they got pregnant while on depo. I thought that it was one of the only birth control methods that prevented pregnancy the most...
Avatar n tn I just started taking, but I am hearing stories that it is dangerous. I am thinking about going on to the patch hopfully that will work. Just i was wondering what all the problems everyone had.
4069776 tn?1349521984 Hello, I was on depo provera for 9 years, I had my last shot in Jan 2012 and was suppose to come get my next shot April 2012, My doctor informed me that it would be fine for me to just stop taking it because I did so well while I was on it and that I should be fine coming off of it, well I didnt. I had horrible side effects from July and they are still happening now, I have had every test done (ultrasounds, blood test, endoscopes, ect.) and everything came back normal.
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 n tn You should discuss this with your OB/GYN doctor, but I believe the risk associated with becoming pregnant while the Depo Provera injection (a synthetic form of progesterone) is active is prermature birth, not birth defects or fetal abnormalities. Shizencephaly, as you likely know, is a pretty rare developmental disorder. It can be caused by toxins, by medications taken by the mother, or other environmental influences.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to get pregnant while only being on depo for 4 weeks? I have breast tenderness, extreme fatigue, and having nausea now. Has anyone been through this?
Avatar f tn I was on depo for 5 years and didnt get pregnant but after your first shot the doctor should have told you how long to wait which is usually after the first period.
Avatar f tn Also has any mother gotten. Pregnant while on this shot? I've had it twice two years apart fro. Each other one shot march 2011one shot september 2013 and both eexperiences were completely different and the second time I got it I did not like it at all.
Avatar f tn Hi I have taken depo-provera for close to 2years after my first boy who is now 6 yrs old so I can concentrate on my professional life (stopped over 9 months ago to try to conceive with my boyfriend). I thought it was gonna take longer but I am now 11 weeks pregnant (baby had great heart beat as per first ultrasound) I am worried if there will be any trouble with the pregnancy or the baby after birth. Does anyone know about this subject?
Avatar n tn How effective is the depo provera birth control shot? ( Is it 'ok' to do it without a condom every once in a while, WITHOUT him going inside me?
Avatar f tn Is it possible since birthcontrol never regulated my period that Depo is not working also. Is it a possibility that I could still become pregnant on Depo if I am bleeding? I recently became sexually active for my first time 4 moths ago, so I never used birth control for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. Now I'm concerned that it is not going to work to prevent pregnancy if it has never worked to control my irregular periods. HELP!
Avatar n tn , but I know my body ( I have two kids already) Is it possible to become pregnant while on the shot? Is it too early to tell? Could I have an ectopic pregnancy?
Avatar f tn agreed... i got pregnant twice while on the depo shot!! so you could get pregnant any time, just depends on your body b/c everyone is different!
Avatar f tn Well it's common to actually get two periods a month for a while on depo so if that happens don't freak (I did lol) I'd say take a test if you think you miss your next period but with you being so newly pp idk if it'll show up positive because of leftover hcg or when you'll actually get a period. Like I said your best bet is to call your dr Monday and get some advice. Keep me updated thoug!
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 You may have irregular bleeding and spotting for quite a while, or nothing at all for quite a while. If you are sexually active and not using any birth control now, take a HPT about every 2-3 weeks until you either get your period back, or get a positive. That's about all you can do at this point. If this keeps up, you should ask your doctor what to do. Are you wanting to be pregnant? I'm assuming so.
Avatar f tn After stoppage of Depo-Provera one can become pregnant as soon as three to four months after the last shot. It varies women to women. It may take some women up to a year or two to conceive once they stop using Depovera.It does not depend on how long you have been using Depovera.If you do not get your periods according to the stipulated time it will be best to consult a gynecologist. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar n tn I also got pregnant while on depo and have a healthy 9 months old and we tried once for another and conceived right away. I'm now 18 weeks and except for horrendous morning sickness, no problems. I think it depends on the person.
Avatar n tn It actually took me over another year after my period returned before, I finally became pregnant. The depo-provera shot is extremely effective. So much so, that it actually is a bad choice of contraceptive if you actually want to get pregnant within 2 years of the shot, because it takes that long for your body to return to normal. If you are still unsure, ask her doctor.
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.
