Hopefully, you will not conceive while you are on depo, since it is a drug that you should not have while pregnant since it may cause birth defects. Wait until you have a good home situation before becoming pregnant.

yes you can get pregnant and have a miscarriage while using depo because i have had one. Tow weeks after my first shot on depo i got pregnant and then a couple of weeks later i lost it which is why you should still use condoms and other things to prevent things like that from occuring...

yes you can get preganant after you only get 1 shot the shot doesnt means that pregnancy cant occur it can the chances are just very slim that you are not really likely to get pregnant while you are on the depo provera shot!!

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.

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

Pregnancy on Depo Provera is not likely, but you can get pregnant before you have a period after stopping Depo Provera. Most accidental pregnancies with Depo happen because the patient is late for her next injection, so be sure to keep on schedule and to have a backup method and emergency contraception on hand.
