Hope this helps, its from Yahoo's health page..
"It provides protection from pregnancy within 2 weeks of the initial injection. Blood levels of DMPA remain high for about 4 weeks, then stabilize at a lower level.
You will probably be given a pregnancy test before your first injection because one study showed that DMPA users who were either pregnant at the time of their first shot or who got pregnant while using the drug were more likely to have low birth weight babies.
It's important that you get your shots regularly. However, if you are going on an extended vacation and need one before 3 months are up, it will do no harm. You also have a grace period of about 4 weeks after the next shot is due. It is inadvisable to push the limit though, because some women have gotten pregnant by extending their three-month intervals"
If you got pregnant on your last depo shot then it should be obvious you can get pregnant taking it.
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.
Although it is unlikely, if you still have ovaries and a womb it is still possible to become pregnant.
i have got pregnant while being on the depo shot it the reason why is that my body did not take the drug how it was suppose to and i found out that when i got the shot to the time i found out i was pregnant as if i was never on it
Some women stop menstruating on depo and they do not get pregnant.
It would be unlikely to get pregnant this soon off depo.
Yes, it's possible to get pregnant between the time you're late for your Depo Provera injection and the time when you've had seven birth control pills in a row, even if you don't yet have a period.
There are no special concerns with gettting pregnant while on Depo Provera or immediately after stopping depo Provera. It does not increase the risk of birth defects or other problems.
Yes you can because the hormones in your body when pregnant start changing, and it is possible to have what appears to be a period at early stages of pregnancy
i want to get pregnant & me & my boyfriend been trying but I've never conceived, how can I get pregnant, is their any pills or vitamins?
I'm not sure that the sore nipples have anything to do with possibly being pregnant.. it prob. has more to do with your hormones changing from being off the depo.. It takes about a year for the depo to get completely out of your system..
Because you COULD get pregnant after 3 months and 1 day. I got pregnant 2 weeks after stopping the depo and switching to the pill. Everyone is different. I know of women who have been off the shot for years and still havent gotten pregnant.
When I first got off the shot I was spotting for several months, had cramps, but I was not pregnant. Normally when you first get off depo, it may take a while for it to completely be out of your body. And it still make take awhile for you to be able to get pregnant.
can i have unprotected sex if i got the dope shot six days ago and not worry about getting pregnant
Yes. Some people can get pregnant 3 months or less after their last injection. Its even possible to get knocked up before depo wears off. If you are unsure if you are pregnant take additional tests and/or see a doctor.
The signs of pregnancy are missing period and positive pregnancy test. Take a pregnancy test; if negative, talk with your health care provider about your symptoms.
yes, its possible that you can be if your periods has always been irregular they often still longer if you but that's how you know.
it is always possible u could be pregnant since no form of bc is 100% effective. when i was on depo i use to spot for 4-6 weeks before my next sht was due but i had no other symptoms. how long have u been on the shot? r ur breasts tender or anything?
You could be pregnant if you had unprotected sex.
Yes its a wonder you are not pregnant now
Yes. Depo takes 30 days or so to become effective and is not 100% effective in any case. No birth control is 100% effective.
yes it is possible to be pregnant even tho you are still having periods you better do a pregnancy test or visit your gp asap
You probably are not pregnant. With depo, you get an infertility after shock. Its like a year or so after your last shot. I had depo a year ago and I still haven't been able to get pregnant and my period started last November and has not been regular since. I also get spotting or 2 periods a month, its all out of whack. Just be patient and if you can, get birth control pills to regulate your cycle. Once you are regular you can get pregnant. Until then, you will go through the weirdest periods ever.
