  • It is possiable. Just like with any birth control there is still a very small chance u can get pregnant. If you miss your period and are really concerned, make an apointment with your doctor! Or try one of those home pregnancy tests. Good luck!

  • The depo shot tends to make it so that it's not only nearly impossible to get pregnant while on it, but just as nearly impossible to get pregnant when you get OFF it. It can stop your ovulation for up to one year after you stop getting the shots. However, you still CAN get pregnant even though it's not likely. I got pregnant with my son approximately 2 weeks after my last shot wore off which almost never happens.

  • "this is my 2nd shot, and due for another in aug. "

    Many times the shot will actually stop your periods from coming. I never had a period while on the depo shot for nearly a year. And I've known women who have been on it 3 years with no periods.
