If you ovulate, your period will soon follow. There are kits you can buy at the drug store that can estimate the probability that you're ovulating, but if you haven't started your period yet (it can take a year to return, maybe more after being on Depo for so long) then the kit is useless. So, the return of your period is the best indicator.

You have been on the depo provera shot for 4 years and you just stop taking the depo provera and you have had unprotected sex for the past 5 months will you get pregnant that soon?

it depends if you are ovulating, if you have started to have a normal period then you may get pregnant. however it can take a while for your body to get back to normal. i was on the injection for roughly a year, and it took me approx 8 months to fall pregnant.

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.

What if you were on Depo for 3 yrs got off its been 5 monthes and only 1 period and had unprotected sex could you be pregnant?

you could be. Are you under stress? Are you sure you are ovulating? Those are some other reasons you don't get your period. Also, I was on depo for 6 years, and was not ovulating once I got off it (no period either) (It is a downfall of depo, no period for so long, when you get off it your body can still be outta whack)You should see your doctor they can give you a hormone pill to jump start things for you. Also, depo can take 12 to 18 months to get fully out of your system. When I got off depo and was not getting my period i had sore and swallon nippled and boobs, headaches, nausea, sore lower back and hip pain. All signs of pregnancy, but it was my body going through withdrawl.

How long after stopping the Depo-Provera shot can you start taking it again?

i have been on depo provera for 2 years. after my first shot i did not want to get the shot again . but then after 6 months i started the shot again and have been on the shot since. it is a very effective birth control option.

What methods of birth control is least expensive and most effective?

The depo prevara shot u get it every three months sooo affective i been using it for 2 years .

If you take depo and must get a shot every 3 months why continue the injection if it takes up to 10 months to get pregnant?

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.

You have been on the depo shot for almost 2 years but you are not taking your next shot and you were wondering when your period would come?

That is a very individual answer. Because injectable Depo is long acting (used as a Birth Control method, it is given every 12 weeks), there is a certain "accumulation" that occurs overtime. Many women who desire conception after using Depo for 2 years or longer, may expect delay in conception. Professionally, I have seen women who have been on Depo for two years or longer who have been unable to conceive for 18-24 months after the Depo was stopped. Again, this is variable. In addition to delayed conception after using Depo, women need to know about the black box warning for Depo. Depo can have a significant negative impact on a women's bone density. It is recommended that a women take calcium and vitamin D supplements daily while on Depo. It is also advised that after 2 years on Depo, the women take a break from the Depo and use an alternative form of birth control for a 3 month period. A bone density scan to evaluate a woman's bone density after two years on the product is also recommended in order to determine bone health before resuming Depo.

You haven't had a period and its been 2 months since the depo shot expiered?

Not all that uncommon, it can take 3 or more months for a return to fertility.

When will you get pregnant you had your last shot on Nov 8 2006 you are 37 you have been having regular periods and ovulating regularly for 10 months?

Depo shots are to be renewed every 4 months, once four months pass and no secondary shots are administered, the chances of pregnancy drastically increase. If the last shot taken was two years ago, and you are capable of having children, and/or are not using some sort of birth control methods, you are very likely to conceive. Take care and good luck.

Could you be pregnant if you had been on the depo shot for a year and you have been off of it for two months and now you have extremely sore nipples?

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..
