  • No BC is 100%. You are supposed to wait a month to let it take full affect. Til the month is up you are supposed to use other forms of protection IE condoms.
    It is possible yes. If you are worried take a test to see.

  • i was on depo ( loved it ) i asked how long do i have to wait ( me and dh were leaving next day for our anniversary and corse didnt want to buy condoms ) my doc said it was effective imidately. but will note this was my 2nd dose so it was already in my system. but when i was on it i never worried about getting pregnant. if anything call the doc and just say this was my first depo shot and how fast does it take effect ( like 20 mins or a few days ) i myself have heard it takes effect fast.. i was on it for 3 1/2 years but now my dh has had a vasectomy so were done with bc. *phew lol *

  • No advice on that, but wanted to say, I have 13lbs to GAIN after my son was born, to get back to were I was before I was pregnant (from being so sick) and after two rounds with that shot I not only gained that back, but another 50lbs! BECAREFUL WITH YOUR WEIGHT!
