Signs Of Pregnancy After First Missed Depo Shot
Okay,well, I had recently started depoo not neccessarily as birth control but to regulate my period. My first shot was in early december and I was due early march. I never went back for my next shot but my "Period" has seemed wierd. Normally I have a very heavy cycle and right now it has been very light and the color went from a light pink to brown. When i would noramlly be using a pad and a tmpon at the same time, im only using a pantyliner. My breasts are very sore and Ive been real achy and moody. Do you think I could be pregnant?

Well it could be sign of being  pregnant. I was on the Depo shot but i had a bad reaction so i had to be taking off of it. If you miss one shot as soon as you go to the doctor they make you take a pregnacy test because its really easy to get pergnant if you miss a shot. Different people have different reactions to the shot.

that is very rare that after you missed the depo shot you are having signs of being pregnant because i know for a fact it can take up to a year for your hormones to regulate.
go see your gyn

I was on the depo shot for 3 yrs, Doctor's told me that it would take me 6 months to a year to get pregnant. I got pregnant 3 Months after being off the shot. So you might want to go get checked out.

...when i first got pregnant...i found that i had cloudy pee...i thought i was crazy till i talked to other friends, and they said the same...it may be from something else, but i found the whole time i was pregnant i had cloudy pee....nothing else like morning sickmess untill i was about 2 months...and even then it didn't feel like morning sickness, i just couldn't eat breakfast...i was on the shot for 2 years, and i was off the shot for about 1 year before i got pregnant...my periods didn't ever resume before that...i got one REALLY light before i was actually preggers...and yes, i agree that it can take up to a year, hell it did with me, but every woman's different, right?? maybe you just have a really fertile body, lol...you could also just be stressing yourself out...

I was on the depo shot for about a year and was supose to get my last shot around September, but i didnt get it. my period came back almost right away and it seemed pretty normal, then i started getting it every 5 days or so but it was lighter. By boobs were super sore and they have deffinitly gotten bigger., my lower stomach area seems to be a little bigger too(but that very well could just be the weight gain from being on the depo) but i have sharp pains and aches in my lower stomach. im tired alot, and some smells make me nauseous. Its been about a month now, and I'm still getting my period 2-3 times a month but the other symptoms havent gone away. is there a chance im pregnant??

Hi Everyone, I  have been on the depo shot since my last child in 2011 she is now 4 years old. So that makes me been on this birth control 4 years, whole time I have gotten my shots on the regular, never missed one. I was suppose to go back for my shot this month on the #july 24th. Side effects made me not want to get back on it , I also wanted my body back to normal  as well as one of them I hated the most was weight gain, but the one i love the most is no period. I haven't had any periods since I been on the shot & that is total normally, others may have regular or irregular periods (everybody body is different). I have experience a lot of pregnancy symptoms like having to urine a lot now than usual, I have hot flashes or be hot at any given time, I crave fruits more than I ever thought I would, I have heart burns, I have lower back aches, my boobs seem to englarge, feelings tired than the usual, bloating, my eating habits would go from been hungry like I never eating a day in my life & may I add, there are times that it is hard for me to get food down or I easily feel full suddenly. I have loose stools as well so I'm trying to drink plenty of water for that & eat light meals at times. I notice today have not taken any hpts & I haven't went to the Dr. For blood test. But can I be pregnant? It's kind of scary to talk to family about it until I know for sure if I am.

I was on depo and you're not supposed to get pregnant for 6 months even after you missed the shot, Bc I missed mine and my bf came in me for that entire duration and I never got pregnant I assume it's true... You maybe be having side effects from the hormone changes ?? Idk .. All women are different but doctors generally are right

Ive only had the depo shot twice, i was meant to have my third 2 weeks ago but i missed it, ive not had periods since being on the depo then today ive had light brown blood, me and my partner had unprotected sex during the time ive missed it, could it just be the injection slowly wearing off? has this happened to anyone else?

I started the new procedures from my doctor on birth control I started in feb and I had to take a single injection 1 time per month for 3 months until the injection got into my system and then after the 3 Ed month I would have took them One every three but I taking my injection on the third and I made an appointment at my doctors office because I was having all of the symptoms taking my injection on the third and I made an appointment at my doctors office because I was having all of the Ache and pains symptoms of pregnancy sore boobs but when I went to take my Injection I was already pregnant I had been very irritated and didn't want to do anything and I would bleed a minute and stop but my doctor said it was normal for that to happen in pregnancy and he gave me an option to terminate the pregnancy with medical and not surgical procedures so no the injection is not 100 percent safe
