Depo shot?

Has anyone ever got pregnant while on that shot? I'm kinda freaking out, I got it the end of January right at the end of my period and still haven't gotten my period since??? Normal??

  • Did you just start the shot, or have you been on it for awhile?

  • It's possible, but the depo shot usually takes away your period, which is normal for being on the depo!

  • Had it after my son was born. He was born May 5th. I got my shot maybe 2 mths after, but had just 1 3 mth cycle but did not get my second shot til January.

  • I was always told I had to get it the 2nd or 3rd day of my period. I do know someone who got pregnant on it, twice (a few years apart). I actually never had sex while I was on it - it was a precaution but unneeded (between my 1st & 2nd babies, when I was single). I had no periods whatsoever while I had it. So maybe you're just going to be one of the lucky ones who doens't have a period? I'd take a test anyway just to double-check.

  • Thank you! As much as I'd love 1 more, I am not ready just yet, he's only ahhhh I guess a test will be in my future. I did have a lighter period when i was on it the first time, but it did not stop altogether.

  • My friend was on Depo and got pregnant, so yes.
