Oh no, how did this happen?  I thought the doctors took a pg test before actually giving you the shot if it is not given within a few days after starting your period.  Did they not do that?  Did it show negative?

Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do now but wait.  There is no reversal for the Depo shot.  You should consider notifing your doctor immediately.  I believe you may have an increased risk of miscarrying.   :-(

yes it was negative..i was pregnant b4 and it took about 7 weeks for a test to actually show positive. i asked them prior getting the shot,to give a bloodtest but they said its not neccesary..now im stuk!im so upset i have to find a different clinic now-they were no help,i will not return to that place ever..

Yes, I am having a little trouble finding info too.  However, I did find the following at this link:  http://www.healthsquare.com/newrx/dep1126.htm

Depo-Provera is not given to pregnant women. If an unexpected pregnancy occurs 1 to 2 months after a Depo-Provera injection, the baby is more likely to have a low birth weight or other health problems....(goes on, but it's long)

I was using google.com and my search was "depo provera while pregnant".

about 9 years ago I got pregnant while on the depo shot... I chose not to keep the baby at that time because there was a reason I was on it.  Anyways, my doctor told me that the baby would be fine.  Also I don't know if you were converting your bc over to the depo but if you do that it contradicts each other and you can get pregnant.  That is what happened to me.  The dr told me to start taking the bp pills 1 month prior to the shot expiring so that I would not get pregnant.  What we did not know at the time is that it contradicts each other.  They do now!  Good luck!

hi dont lose hope just yet, my friend was 2 months when she got her first shot and did not know, her doc did a test as well but it was neg too, she went back about 3 weeks after her first shot as she was feeling nausea, she did a blood test and it was pos, she now has a 3 year old daughter no side affects just yet. Did u tell ur doc that ur last test took 7 weeks to pick up? Maybe if he/she knew that they would have done a blood test or US. pLEASE FIND MORE INFO, I HOPE YOU GO ON TO KEPP IT AND I WISH U A VERY HEALTHY PREGNANCIE...GOOD LUCK...GO TO UR DOC RIGHT AWAY AND HAVE THEM DO A US....xxx LOTS OF LOVE!

I hope this makes you feel a little better. I worked in OB-Gyn for 5 years. I have seen a handful of women pregnant while on Depo during the first 1-2 months. They had uneventful pregnancies and delievered healthy babies. Good luck and keep us posted.

Hi Everyone,

Okay well, I've been reading on this forum and another one that was closed at the end of 2004. A lot of this information is very interesting to me. You see, I've been on depo many years now. I've never really had any problems with it. They put me on it because they had me on the pill and it made me bleed a lot. I was in and out of the hospital for a week and had to change every hour. It was awful. Well, I got my last shot and I am due for another one on the 8th. Well, It seems to me this one has worn off quite a bit quicker than the rest of them. I started spotting and am having my normal emotional problems I normally have when my shot is wearing off. However.... Some of the signs I am showing would also show pregnancy. It just let's me know to have them do a test before I get my next shot. Thank you for posting the website. The information there helped a lot with how I have been feeling and side effects. Thanks again

I found this: http://www.otispregnancy.org/pdf/Depo_Provera.pdf on the 2nd page...hope it helps.

What are the effects on my baby if I was
already pregnant when I received my Depo
shot?
One study showed there may be an
increased risk of neonatal and infant death
when exposed to Depo Provera during
pregnancy. Again, these babies were more
likely to have a lower birth weight than babies
not exposed. No other studies have shown an
increase in birth defects or long term health
issues from use of Depo Provera during
pregnancy. In addition, there is no indication
that Depo Provera causes an increase in
pregnancy loss or miscarriage. However, when
you know you are pregnant you should not
continue getting the Depo Provera injections.

My friend was given a depo provera shot during time of conception. She was given one three months later and given one again three months later.  So that was three shots.  She was always given the urine test first.  The third time they called her back after giving the urine test and shot and told her she needed to do the urine test again.  Then they told her she was pregnant.  Then she had an ultra sound and found out she was five months pregnant which means they were giving her shot while she was pregnant.  Then her baby was born and they said he was okay.  He was six weeks old when he died!  We are still waiting on the autopsy report but we told the pathologist about these shots!  We live in Pennsylvania and within an half and hour of being told her baby was dead at the emergency room she and the baby's father were taken into separate rooms and questioned they were not nice questions either.  Then the police questioned her nine year old and six year old and they were not nice questions either.  Then they served a search warrant on their home questioned their neighbors questioned me all of this before they even had an autopsy report! I think they could have waited for the autopsy.  apparently nothing indicated they did anything to their child since he was released the next day for a funeral.  Personally I believe these shots have caused a problem.  Soon we will know!
It is not a pleasant experience to wakeup and find your baby unresponsive still wondering what happened and then being questioned in such a rude manner and bothering her children how insensitive is that????

Hi, i'm 17 and 7 months pregnant off of depo. I was already 2 months pregnant when i got pregnant but the doctor didn't give me a test like she always did....I think i'm doing fine but i'm don't sure..i'm not all that big but u can tell i'm pregnant i eat alot and sleep alot and was told i'm gonna have a premie. i'm due april 10th 2008 and i'm really scared and don't kno what to do. my mom says i'm fine but i feel like i could be better..i stay with headaches and feel the baby move all da time.

I was on the Depo Shot when I got pregnant as well. (i had let it lapse for about a month, but I did that before and never got pregnant) Because I didnt have a period, I had no clue.  I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at 34 weeks.  She was 4lbs 13oz. Ive been on the Depo on and off since I was 16. Im now 31.  I believe that the low birth weight has alot to do with Depo!  My daughter is now 1 year old, and Ive been on the shot since 4 weeks after she was born.  Im now showing symptoms of pregnacy again. Ive taken several pregnancy tests but they all have come back negative. Im praying thats not the case, but who knows.  I believe that if youve been on it too long, it doesnt have the same effect.

I am 27 years old and was diagnosed with endometrosis when I was 21 after having severe pain and passing out every month. I have now been on Depo for alittle over 5 years and am wondering if it is possible for me to be pregnant. For the last 2 weeks I have been exhausted, have noticed spotting when I urinate, and my breasts feel full and hurt. I get nauseated off and on through out the afternoons as well. Could this all be in my head because I want to be a mother? I have taken 2 HPT and they were both negative. I just dont know what to think because I havent had a menstrual cycle the entire time I have been on the shot. My doctor never advised me on anything other than saying I needed to be on this for my health. I am now regretting ever starting it because I have read horry stories about women how try for years to get pregnant and cant. I was seeing a specialist and he told me that I had stage 4 and that if I wanted children I should do it before 30 and then to go ahead and have everything removed. Im scared that I will never be able to have a family of my own and my fiance and I get excited over the possibility of a little one! Any advise or insite will be greatly appreciated. I feel like no one understands!

I'm really upset right now!

My period is 4 weeks late, 1 pos and 6 neg urine tests. I wanted a blood test but my dr wouldnt perform one. She told me since i wasn't planning on getting pregnant and wasnt pregnant i should get on the depo shot. i got the shot today for the first time.

i hae had some preg symptoms on and off for the past 2 weeks or so like nausea, big boobs,and i'm always tired. i'm afraid that i may have altered a possible pregnancy. how do i go about knowing whether i'm pregnant or not? should i go bak in feb and ask if i'm preg again? by feb (if i am pregnant) i'll be about 5 months...or should i go to another place and ask for an ultrasound??

also, should i keep taking the prenatals???

thanks u all. i'm so afraid right now!

I recieved my first Depo shot on November 19th, which was the first day of my period.  At the time I also had the Mirena IUD, but that was giving me extremely painful cramps and uncontrollable bleeding.  My doc gave me the Depo shot a month before I got the Mirena taken out to ensure that I was protected and would not get pregnant.  I bled for 3 weeks straight after taking the shot!  I actually had to go in and have my Mirena taken out early because of the amount of bleeding and clotting.  Since I had the Mirena removed and have been on the shot I have not had a period at all, which my doctor tells me is normal.  I'm not sure if I like the Depo shot yet, because I have been having some wierd side efects.  I have been having headaches daily, nauseousness, diarrhea and mood swings.  My boyfrind and I got worried and took a pregnancy test, but it came out negative, so it has to just be side effects from the shot right?  Reading all of these posts is starting to get me worried :(

I am 20 years old, I've taken the Depo Shot Dec 6th, 2010. I am Due for another on March 6th, 2011. Right after I got my shot, My boyfriend & I had intercourse, and he didn't hawl it out in time, I've been told it takes 24 hours for the shot to be in ur body fully protected, and i've also told that it takes a few weeks, for the pass 2-3 weeks i've been feeling nauseous, tired alot, I usually get nauseous in the afternoon, right after i eat my dinner, and before i go to bed. I havent taken any pregnancy tests yet, But i plan to. Should I go get my next Depo shot?

Well the first step is to even see if you're pregnant before deciding to get the next one or not. The shot is effective in 24 hours. The symptoms you're feeling are also side effects of the depo so they don't tell much of anything. Take a test with first morning urine. At this point it will be accurate.

I just had my son in Dec. and when i went in for my 6 week check up the Doctor asked me if i wanted any birth control, So i wanted the depo shot.

They give me the depo shot. shortly after I get the shot I start getting Sever Vomitting and nausia almost like the flu but no chills of aching body or Fever. So I take another home test and that came out Positvie with a clear faint line like the pregnancy test I took when i was pregnant with my son, So i went back to the doctor and took another Blood test still Neg. And now im 2 months into this Depo shot and Iv been bleeding the whole time off and on, Not too heavy and not soo light and im feeling nausia all the time and i want to eat more like when i was pregnant. What are the symtoms (symptoms) of Being pregnant on depo shot? and Can the depo shot affect blood pregnancy test?

( sorry for details) i went to the bathroom one day and noticed what looked like a white string with blood on it. the clinic i went to insured me that i has a spontanios abortion witch cud have been caused by the depo. i gatherd all that information in and moved on with my life and got another shot of depo. kay but now for the past 2 weeks i have been feeling movement alot and it feels alot like when i was pregnant with my first son. i dont kno what to think since i was told that depo was 99 percent affective.. i have an ultrasound in two days so hopefully my mind is playing tricks on me. i just wanna kno if depo and effect my baby if i am pregnant/

I got on the depo shot a about 4, almost 5 months ago. I don't know when but maybe a month while I was on it I started eating alot and stuff. But about a month and a half ago I started drinking every weekend and my belly hurts everytime it like.."jiggles" you could say lol but it feels hard when I stand up and sometimes hurts jus below my belly. I could feel something" bubbling" in there and im not sure what it is. Before I got on the depo I took 6 pg. Tests and they all said negative but everytime since, a few weeks before I got on it I haven't used a condom and that was maybe more then 10 times .. my lower back hurts alot and when I stand up I look bloated, like I am 4 months preg. Do you think I am? I hope not because I've ben doing alot of bad things and if I am I hope it isn't dead..

I had my daughter 7 months ago and I bled for a month after giving birth. I breastfed for 4 months and never had a period. Then decided to get on bc and chose the depo shot. They gave me a pregnancy test and it came back neg. so I got the shot. Well I am now due for my 2nd shot in a few weeks but still have not had a period this entire time. Now I have extreme cramping in my lower abdomen and lower back, bloated, fatigued, and some brown spotting. I really hope this is just a sign of menses returning. Has anyone else never got a period after the first injection of depo?

I completely sympathize with you. I got my depo shot (for the 1st time) on 7/22/2011 bc i was told this was the best treatment for endometriosis (severe bleeding and pain). I was on day 2 of my cycle when I got it. Two days after the shot, my period completely went away and havent bled since. I didnt have a cycle last month. Its been almost 8 weeks since my first shot and four days ago, i started spotting. Its very very light pink (barely noticeable) I only see it when I wipe. Im bloated, most foods make me gag and im nauseous and tired all the time. I have no idea if this is a side effect of depo or something else. But, I have not had a cycle since starting depo. This bothers me bc i find it hard to believe that it would make your cycles go away in just one shot bc from what I read, it takes a year of getting it for your periods stop. Im only 8 weeks into it and no period. Some people say that these are the side effects of depo, but if so, then why am I just now getting them? Im due for my next shot 10/7/11-10/14/11.

You are a horrible horrible person I don't know how you can just say you got rid of your baby what you should say so everyone can know is you had a shot givin to the baby that stops it from getting the suppluments it needs to live and then had its body parts sucked out into a vacume and whiel it sucked it out it was still alive and torn to pieces you are horrible and to know that your baby would have been fine too. You could have just givin it up for adoption until putting its life into your own murdering hands and letting complete strangers mutalate your baby *****!

by 98nightrider, 5 hours I've been on the depo shot for 7 yrs off and on after my first child (7). I was on it again for a few shots and was unable to get the next one, then I had my younger son (5) there 18mths apart. Well like I said, I've been off and on the shot, I try not to stay on for over a year. Well I started back on it 6/10 and my last shot was 9/ 11, I haven't missed one. I've never had a period while on the shot. I've heard that it takes 2 weeks to "kick in" when you get the very first shot, but does that apply each time you get it? When I go to get my shots, I'm not given a test. Within the past few weeks I've been exausted! Sleepin at night and taking naps during the day. Right below my belly button is hard and my lower back hurts more than usual my hip started hurting this morning, I've had headaches, and I wake up with swollen hands and feet. I've gained weight everytime I get the shot even thought my diet has not changed, but its always been in my stomach that I've gained weight. I'm very concerned about this and I'm wondering if I'm pregnant. With my 2nd child, I took tests for 3 mths before I got a positive. Soo... there ya go... any ideas? Ps... I will not be gettin my next shot,

I have been researching this because I just had my child and we have only known i was pregnant for about 3 weeks now I have taken depo through my whole pregnancey because every test came back negative due to the hormones in the shot counter acting with my natural hormones and I had to have an emergencey c-section because my babys heart beat was dropping majorly and I am trying to find out if the Depo could have caused my little baby a heart defect and if so what I can do to seek help, please get back to me.
