Does your body fight off pregnancy by bleading after intercourse while on the Depo shot?

it is possible that some women might bleed a little after intercourse while on the depo shot The reason why some women on depo bleed after intercourse is because the injection makes the lining of her uterus very thin and weak. by making it thinner and weaker, depo can help prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the endometrium (uterine lining). When some women have intercourse, this disrupts it and the weak uterine lining will bleed a little. I have had experience with depo and have bled every time after intercourse when on depo. It is not your body "fighting" off pregnancy.

Is it normal not bleed at all on the depo injection?

Yes. The depo shot is supposed to stop your period all together, making it less possible to become pregnant. I got my shot done in mid November of 2010, and for the first two months I did bleed lightly which is also normal. Now I've been on it for almost 9 months and don't bleed at all so it's a good sign that you don't bleed.

Yes it's very possible and actually you should expect it. When I used depo, I bled so badly after I stopped using it, I thought I was hemorrhaging Don't worry, it should lighten back up some after a couple months, as the medicine leaves your body completely.

What if you developed amenorrhea after depo and period was induced?

Could you be pregnant on the depo injection?

Yes, it is possible. The Depo injection is 99% effective, but there is always that small 1% chance that you could become pregnant while on it. However, most women who have gotten pregnant while on the depo injection is because they waited too long to get their next depo injection so it was no longer effective. If you are on this type of birth control, remember to get your shots on time. Also remember that while the shot helps prevent pregnancy, it does not protect against STDs in any way.

Why would you bleed six days in a row after being on Depo-Provera for two and a half years?

There are several things that can cause an irregular cycle while on depo. One is antibiotics, as they can cause a decrease in the strength of most forms of birth control. Most antibiotics will warn you about this on their information insert. Another probability is a high level of stress, temporary or long-term, has caused your body to cycle while on depo. If niether of these sound like the cause, I would recommend seeing your doctor or OB/GYN, because STDs can also cause you to cycle while on depo. Good luck. :)
