In early may I changed my control from the iud (mirena) and the same day got my first depo shot ( me and my boyfriend had sex the next day). I've done the shot before years ago and stayed on my period the whole time...this time no period. I also have a lot of bloating and fatigue. Is it possible for me to be pregnant? Was there a window of opportunity for me to get pregnant when I switched my birth control?
no i don't think you are pregnant from being on depo, it's almost an impossibility to get pregnant on or after depo as i'm now experiencing 2 years after coming off of depo. I know some ppl may have conceived while on it but i don't think it's likely.
Hey i feel im in the same boat as you, i was on the mirena for 6months but in order for me to come off it i had to go straight on the depo so whilst i was changing over i to had unprotected intercourse. Im now off the depo and im on no birth control and having unprotected intercourse hoping to fall pregnant i havn't had my period in four months but had a light period twice in January 2010. I have symptoms of feeling pregnant but am still unsure whether i am or not. All tests came back negative in the first couple of months of missing it. Best advice i got was to go and get an ultra sound. I havnt done so yet but will be going to get one soon. Yes i know alot of people falling pregnant whilst on the depo or changing birth control and chances are you may be pregnant. Good luck to you.
I have switchd to depo from mirena iud and I was iud for 2 years and only been depo for two and half months my next shot is due Nov 25.. well my husband says he's ready for a baby.... how long would it take to pregnant if I don't take my next shot??? I was told a year!!!! Is that true!?
Cant really say but most likely be 6months or a year you never no and you cant say when you'll get pregnant its when god thinks your ready but give it time let your body get used to the changes before you start trying and I'll pray for you :-)
