Katie-beth - September 12

Ok I got off the the depo provera shot and on june 2 it was not effective anymore. I had been having unprotected s_x just about everyday up untill june 20th which is the same day I started my pill. I had really light bleading around the 17th but it didn't last even a day. I haven't had a period since then. I have been having headaches, really bad cramps and constipation. Is there any chance that I might be pregnant? Does anyone know how long it takes to get pregnant after getting off of the depo shot? Please help!

I was on the depo shot for almost a year. I have been off now for a month and a half and still no period or even spotting...shouldn't I have started my period or atleast spotted when i got off the shot without an alternative b.c? Also Joella, I think it depends on how long you were on the shot and your age to determine how long it will be before you may get pregnant...

u should definatly take a test

it can take up to a year for you to get pregnant after being on depo. it doesnt matter if you were on it one year or 10 it still can take just as long. most doctors say that you will be fertil after you have your first period.

My last shot was in June 2002 and I didn't have my first period until September 2003 and they're still very unregular.

I was on the shot for 6 years. I got off the shot and got pregnant in 6 weeks! Crazy huh? My son is now 2 and doing awesome! I would for sure take a test!

Autumn- thanks for the hope! My husband and I are in the first stages of trying to get pregnant and everywhere I hear how hard it is after the shot! I'm glad to hear everything worked out for you.

This is reply to autumn, did you have any sde effectes while on the shot. I was on the shot for 4 1/2 yrs, my last shot as due in march and I didnt go, me and my husband are desperately trying to conceive and havent had any luck. When you stopped the shot did your period return immediately??

I was on depo for 31/2 years. After I stopped, I didn't get my period for 5 months. As for pregnancy, it took 3 years. They were just about to start fertility treatments when I found out a week later I was pregnant. Depo is really strange because it affects everyone differently. My friend got pregnant on the shot and is now having a hard time getting pregnant while using nothing. All I can think to do is test, if it's negative, wait for your period and if you still don't get it, get to the doctor. I could be that the hormones are still in your system and that's what's causing you to be late, but you just never know with depo.
