Not to be gross, but what do I do?

My boyfriend and I have an almost 8 month old son, I, so far have had 3 of the depo shots for not getting prego there anyway I could possibly reverse that or when is the best time to have sex again if you don't have a period? Is there anything I can do?

  • I don't think you can reverse it or really need to worry about getting pregnant while you're on it. If you're wanting to try and get pregnant agian I think you just don't go in for you next shot. I wasn't having sex at the time I was on the depo shot and honestly noone ever gave me any info about it (foster kid with a caseworker who said no school plays unless you're taking this shot becuase apparantly if you were over 13 you were going to have sex any chance you got). After I stopped being on the shot I just didn't go in for the one that was due and I was probably 5 months overdue before I started having regular sex and for about six months we had unprotected sex before I got pregnant with my daughter (not really a planned thing, call it idiocy on our parts).

  • I haven't had my last shot...I was supposed to have that Oct. 27th but my doctor told me no due to my headaches, and then after I didn't have the shot I have been spotting on and off for the past two to three weeks now...It's not an everyday thing but maybe every other day though....It's quite I just keep taking tests?

  • Are you trying to get pregnant or prevent it?
