I have an 8 month old and I got pg. when I was on the depo shot. so yes it is VERY pos. I had all the symptoms but all my pg. tests came out neg. I think it was all the medicine in the shots messing up the pg. tests. it didnt show up until 3.5 months. within 2 weeks i found out i was pg and my due date and that it was a boy what a shocker. If you think you are I would do a test if its a neg. I would call the doc. for a blood test.

My doctor also said that different kinds of medicines can affect the shot and the pill too. are you taking any?
i think waiting on your next shot would be good but then again that can pose another problem too cant it? as far as if your not then you might become....hhhhhmmmmm this is a tuff one. I would wait and take another test soon and see what happens. good luck keep us posted.

my close friend was on the depo shot and she got PG . i think she was on it from 6 mon to 1 year and now here baby is 5 months now he is so cute. so i would wait to get the next shot.

But then i was also on the shot after my first pg (still no Kids) and the Dr. told me that it would take up to a year after you stop taking it if you would like to have kids. i reciver the shot 2 times and then no more and i got pg again and it was about 15 months after i stop taking the shot.

You know every womans bodies are different.

i hope you find out soon

Question Re: Pregnant while on depo Provera???

Eeyore all my docs asked me if i was pregnant so i took 3 preg tests all negative i have stretch marks on my belly but i dont know if its from depo and gaining weight because with certain foods on depo there 3 times worse.
I dont know what to do i feel pregnant and everyone i talk to about it asks me if i could be, i got my first shot in august and didnt have my periods until August.13th. could i possibly be pregnant?

Re: Pregnant while on depo Provera???

I suppose the depo shot might not work for everyone. Or maybe certain other medications interfere with it's effectiveness. However, I was on depo for almost 5 years. I never had a period. But I have heard if you don't get them right on time your body starts to "unfreeze". Maybe that's why you saw spotting. Did you get them on time? It took me 8 months after my last shot to start spotting again. It took me 3 months after that to conceive.
I don't think I had any side effects to depo. I didn't even gain weight, it was like nothing except I didn't have a period. It was nice!!!

Re: Pregnant while on depo Provera???

Rosey,just because one doesnt have a period doesnt mean they havent Oed. Look at young girls who get pregnant before they even have their first period. It can happen the lack of a period doesnt mean one hasnt Oed. Just like having a period doesnt mean one has Oed.
