ive been on depo since i was 16 im 19 now ive been off depo for about 9months, ive taken 2 pregnancy test they both were negative but ive missed my period. i heard that depo makes it difficult to detect the hcg hormone

girls, get off the shot. being on it for more than 2 years can seriously screw with you. It makes it hard to get pregnant and it can screw up alot of other things too. go yell at your Gyno, because you shouldnt be on this form of Birth control this long.

Pleae get of the depo... i was on it and when i came off it it mucked up my hormones so much that they said i might not be able to have kids... We tryed for a year and nearly gave up when my doctor said i need to go for a scan as they thought the depo had done damage. I had to move towns to get a scan done and just before i got the scan done i got sick.. went to the doctor and was pregnant. the depo is dangrous and in many places it has been band.. dont go on it if you can especially if you want kids.. also it takes along time to get your hormones right and a long time to have kids.. please get of the depo and go on something else like the pill..

i have heard that depo provera is given to women and girls who are intellectually impaired, so that they are never able to reproduce. there has been very little research done about depo and the long term affects it has on a person. i had it once when i was younger and i will NEVER have it again. it had a terrible effect on me.

Okay - I've been on depo for many, many years and quite frankly, the only problem I've had is that I'm pregnant. It does not cause any mental defect and like any other form of birth control may have other side effects. Main thing is that depo does not have any impact on a pregnancy test. Take the test several times to ensure you have an accurate reading. Additionally, if you are pregnant, depo does not cause any deformities/ abnormalities in the child either. Oh, and all this comes from my doctor since I was on depo when I got pregnant.
