  • My best friend's girlfriend got pregnant on Depo, but it was because the batch her Dr. got was bad. There were like 4 other girls that she knew of that got pregnant.

  • I was on Depo and it worked very well for me, but a lot of women have gotten pregnant even if they are days late in getting their next injection so it is just very important to be on top of it.

  • Depo is 99% effective is used properly. So I guess there is that 1% chance you could get pregnant.

    Why is this question in "trying to conceive"?

    If you have been on depo and are planning to get off in order to get pregnant, it sometimes takes a month or more to wear off. I didn't start getting my periods until I was off 6 months.
