What are the chances of Getting pregnant on the Shot?

I took the shot two times, so thats... 6 months about. My son is nine months old. I have never missed a shot. When my boyfriend went too jail almost three months ago, I stopped taking it. I know sperm only lasts a few days inside the body so I doubt it happened, but I jsut want to know from someone its happened too who has never missed or been late on a shot. I just have been feeling tired alot lately even though I take two naps a day usually. My stomach seems too look bigger everyday, but I dont have the best eating habits AT ALL. I've been having dreams about being pregnant too. I dont know.

  • I took the shot for awhile and after the first few times of taking it, my period went away all together. The shot is strong, I don't know specific percentages or medical information but you've gotta be highly fertile to get pregnant on the shot lol call the doctor??

  • I was on the shot for 2 years and missed it once. Went in a month after i missed it to go get it and I had to take a urine test first cause it was routine and I found out I was pregnant. I also got pregnant when I was on the pill.

  • It is clinically proven over 99% effective. So it does fail, but not often.
