Actually, you have 10 days after your missed shot before the injected medicine wear off. I was on Depo-Provera for a year and a half. I missed my shot that was scheduled on May 5....I called my doctor and she said that I have to schedule another appointment before the 15. As long as I did that then I shouldn't get pregnant, but during that time, to be on the save side I should use some form of Birth Control til my appointment time. I'm not a doctor so if I were you I would just call my doctor to make sure that you can reschedule another appointment.

Well im no doctor, but i weighed 90lbs when i started depo, i was 114lbs within a year. i have been off depo for 5 months and ive lost 10 lbs. but everyone is different. it has alot to do with staying busy and will power to just push away from the table, cutting your servings of food in half.

Irregular bleeding on Depo Provera is not unusual, although typically it settles down by the time a year and a half go by. Your bleeding may be a side effect, but if you are at risk of infection or have other symptoms, see your health care provider.

You should see a doctor and make sure that you find out if you are pregnant.

I got ONE depo shot in Jan 09...still havent gotten pregnant and its Nov 09. Got my period 3 months after the shot, but no signs of ovulation....all ovulation tests are negative, every month. Im very frustrated and Im tired of wondering if "maybe this month"...I wouldn't recommend depo to anybody....

Ive been on the depo shot for 4 and a helf years and my shot was due July 11 2008 and i missed it and it is August 5 2008 how long will it take me before i can get pregneant..?

Technically you could get pregnant immeadiately, however most people say its about another 3 months of so before the hormone truly wears off. Healthy couples (who are trying to conceive) typically conceive within 12 months after stopping birth control.

Ive been on birth control rarely missed a pill but now im a month or 2 late on my period and ive started having symptoms indegetsion sleepy but test are neg or faded pregnant can you still be pregnant?

No. And the "faded" pregnant comment suggests that you are looking at the test long after the time it's supposed to be read. The birth control pill can cause a missed period. If this side effect is troublesome to you, contact your health care provider for a change in prescription.
