OT Grace Period For The Depo Shot

I’ve decided not to get another injection and am scheduled to get an IUD on Thursday. I’ve been off the shot for a few weeks (since my scheduled follow up injection) and am just wondering if it has a grace period? I’ve been trying to research on the internet but there is no definitive answer. Anyone with any personal experiences?

not sure if this will help but i stopped the depo and wanted to get pregnant and it took 8 months even though the booklet i was given said it could take 12-18 months .....i do understand you are trying to prevent so you should be OK just make sure the DR does a test beofre the IUD good luck

You're suppose to get the shot within 13 weeks. They set my next injection at 11 weeks, just in case something came up. My sister got pregnant the next month when she got off depo, so I'd use back-up contraceptives if it's past 13 weeks.

I was on depo for years and I was pregnant the first month after the shot 'wore off'.
