  • You might loose weight, but increase your chance of pregnancy!

  • Then you're not on birth control anymore and have to be VERY careful. As far as I know the timing only has to do with being protected against pregnancy; you can get it any time after the 3 months is up.

  • It might take a month or two for your period to come back, but if you miss the shot, you are no longer on birth control and can get pregnant.

  • you can get pregnant. I believe its only a 3 month shot! So if you don't wanna have a baby I'd make sure your using protection and when you go back (if you go back to get it) make sure they test you for pregnancy before giving you another shot.

  • You can get pregnant before getting your next period. I did.

  • You can get pregnant. It's been awhile since I had it but I think you have a window to get the shot in that your gyno tells you to come back in (for example August 14-28). If you don't get the shot by the last day of that window better start using condoms! If you're a couple days late getting your shot you should use condoms for the first week until the shot builds up in your system.
