M, yes indeed Depo is safer than a condom, you can get pregnant during the first month of using depo ... the use of a condom is vital, and if you get your shots on time, you wouldn't have to worry about getting pregnant. As far as side effects go .... different strokes, for different folks. Me, for an example, I was on depo for 3 years ... but I didn't stop having my periods. Weight gain, wasn't a concern for me, but losing my hair was .. but anyway ... I got off depo ... and now I have a healthy baby girl .. so if you are trying to become pregnant, good luck and remember it will take some time before you will become pregnant... Again, good luck

Depo takes 6 to 8 months for an average woman to fully be off of it. You might still have enough of it in your system for your body not to cycle properly.

how would you know if you were pregnant while on the pill? is there signs?


Robin - September 30

you will have symptoms of being pregnant once you start taking birth control pills but with time the side effects should diminish, if not go to the doctor and get a pregnant side and/or blood test

is it ok to take the pill after depo, need to regulate my periods, still havin got them but want to take the pill to help is it safe


Robin - October 7

yes, it is safe. Doctors use birth control pills to regulate periods. Go to the doctor and get a physical and be sure to ask questions . and decide which birth control pills are for you .. good luck
