Ok ladies..I was on depo for two years and I stopped last Wednesday cause I gained so much weight. If I started taking the pill the same day, do I have a chance of getting pregnant? And I haven't been using any protection. Any advice??

  • Technically whenever there is sex there's a chance of pregnancy. The only 100% foolproof methods of birth control are abstinence or sterilization.

    HOWEVER... the odds are against pregnancy.

  • Highly unlikely.

  • Do some research on depo. It will take at LEAST 6 months for the depo to filter out of your system completely. Average time of conception after depo is 6-18 months.

    I was on depo for 4 years. I've been off of it for 2 years now and I'm still not pregnant. My cycles have been regular and predictable for about 6 months now.

  • Very unlikely.
    Kudos to you for having a plan!

  • Any time you have sex you run a chance. It is not a good chance, but there is one. No advice at this time since you are already on birth control.
