All birth control methods have a failure rate, including Depo. The only way to know is to have a pregnancy test done to determine if you are pregnant.
It is highly unlikely to get pregnant on the depo provera. And if you are worried because you have not had a period in two months that is normal for the depo shot. It is made to stop your period
No, Some women do not get their period while on the depo shot while some women might. You might also spot the entire 3 months you have the depo shot in your system and some women such as yourself do not get anything. Unless your late on your depo shot I would not worry. If that doesnt help there is always the trusty pregnancy test!
If a girl's on the depo shot for 2 years and hasn't had her period in a year does this mean she is unfertile and she won't get pregnant?
It can take up to 18 months (average 11 months) to get your period after stopping Depo Provera. Women get pregnant at the same rate after stopping Depo Provera as women who have never used it. There's just a delay.
It is common to have no period when using Depo Provera.
Signs that you CAN get pregnant after the shot? Getting your period for one. It take several months for the shot to get out of your system (although it has happen sooner for some women).
Could I be pregnant because I received my last depo-shot six months ago and havent had a period?
Unlikely, if you got the shot during ur period u can have sex whenever. If u got it after you have to wait a week so your not pregnant. Depo has a .3% fail rate. 3 out of 1000 women will get pregnant a year using the shot
Pregnancy on Depo Provera is not likely, but you can get pregnant before you have a period after stopping Depo Provera. Most accidental pregnancies with Depo happen because the patient is late for her next injection, so be sure to keep on schedule and to have a backup method and emergency contraception on hand.
You may get your period, but probably not. Depo changes the menstrual cycle in women who use it.
Not usually. Most women do not experience periods while on Depo.
depo is injected into the muscle, it tricks the body into thinking you are pregnant this is why your period is stopped. you do not ovulate at all.
There is no danger to the pregnancy if a women uses Depo Provera while pregnant. No punishment is necessary.

Yes, Depo Provera is a birth control medication and is intended to help women avoid pregnancy.
Is it possible to get pregnant if you have been on Depo-Provera for one and a half years and have not had a period for over 6 months?
Highly unlikely that you are pregnant as the depo shot is one of the best methods of birth control. If you have not had a period, you should ask your doctor but I do know that it is common with depo users.
You are supposed to get the shot when you are on your period to make sure you aren't pregnant, but you still need your yearly exam and the doctors dont want you on your period for that.
If you are on time for your Depo Provera injection, you are equally protected for 13 to 15 weeks after your last shot.
Previously very fertile fell pregnant after 1 month twice butnow had 1 depo injection how long to get pregnant afterhad no problems or periods?
The depo usually lasts for 6 months, after this time women need to have another shot to remain infertile. so usually after 6 months you can become pregnant again. However, it can last a lot longer than that, the depo can really stuff up womens cycles and some women find it very difficult to get pregnant again after the depo shot.
The depo shot prevents you from having a period. Its nothing to worry about.
Yes. Although it is true that for many women it takes months for their fertility to return after stopping Depo Provera, it is still possible to fall pregnant if you leave it longer than 12 weeks to have your next shot. You should use another method of contraception until you can speak to your GP to get another Depo shot.
If you are not on your period when you get the depo shot nothing will happen but you will have to use condoms for seven days after you get the shot to help prevent pregnancy ....depo provera only works immediately when you are on your period
Many women have unscheduled bleeding when starting depo Provera. This irregular bleeding decreases with time.

Yes its completely normal. Some women are different on the shot. Some have periods some do not.

When you're on Depo Provera, you don't ovulate, and so don't get a real period. However, some women have bleeding or spotting while using Depo Provera. This is a common side effect.

Can a woman get her firs depo shot 6 days after her period?

Yes you could be pregnant. The depo-provera shot is supposed to be taken every 3 months, meaning that once you reached the 4th month you were no longer protected. If you feel that you could be pregnant, you should get checked right away

I personally received the Depo Shot about a week and a half before my period was due and never got it. I've read that many women stop getting periods altogether. I guess it's a good thing but it can be scary especially if it's your first time using Depo.
Yes. It's even possible to get pregnant while still on Depo Provera, as it is not 100 percent effective. 83 percent of women who stop taking the shot get pregnant within the first year. Time does vary as your fertility will go back to what it was before taking the shot. Some women can conceive sooner, and some later.
If you are on the Depo shot then when it is time to go back and get your shot they will tell you and you won't be able to get your shot.
I got the depo shot 1 week after unprotected sex then found out I was pregnant. I lost the baby because of an ectopic pregnancy. There is no proof but I think depo had something to do with it.
