Oh yes! It is very possible. I was on it for awhile and then stopped for about a month and in between that period I got pregnant. So Yes it is very possible. Go to the doctor sweetheart.

Yes. If you don't get your shot in time, then you are unprotected. The effect stops right away.

Its possible if you're pregnant & continue having the shot.

After the last shot of Depo Provera, it can take over 6 months for the drug to leave the body.But you should start another form of birth control after 6-12 weeks after your last shot.

I am 25 weeks pregnant and just had a tetanus shot (stepped on a nail) - so I don't believe that the shot has any impact on when to get pregnant. It's a dead virus so it should be okay right away.

Anything is possible. You can get pregnant on birth control. So being off it a month..of course its possible.

If you got pregnant on your last depo shot then it should be obvious you can get pregnant taking it.

If you had brown discharge for the 14 weeks after the shot, this may be your reaction to it. If you had sex in the first 12 weeks you were protected. After that you were not protected.

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.

There is no estrogen in Depo Provera. It contains only progestin. The 3-month shot contains 150 mg of depot-medroxyprogesterone.

If you are not getting your Depo Provera injection at least every 13 to 15 weeks, you could get pregnant.

User Avatar

its possible since you're supposed to get the shot every 3 months. but its unlikely

User Avatar

Yes it can take longer than that before you get symptoms.

The Depo Provera injection lasts for 13-15 weeks. After that, you could get pregnant.

Yes - and please regardless if your on the shot or not use a condom! The shot does not protect you against STD's or HIV/Aids.

User Avatar

Yes it is possible, only one sperm is enough to get pregnancy.

No, the shot prevent ovulation. They usually give you a pregnancy test though. At least they do here.

Depo is SUPPOSED to protect you for the full 13 weeks, but I got pregnant with twins in my eighth week after I took the shot.

User Avatar

It is possible but many women don't have periods while on the shot.

User Avatar

Not likely. Most women have not even ovulated at this point after birth.

Depo-Provvera is over 99% effective against pregnancy.

User Avatar

yes and I have had the experience of getting pregnant while on it = very possible. the only way is 100% is NO sex.

I have a friend that just gave birth a couple of months ago that was taking the shot until she was 6 months pregnant. She did not know that she was pregnant and kept on getting the depo shot. He was born a few weeks early and had alot of health problems when he was born. Before the child was a week old, he had to have surgery.
