How Can I Get Pregnant While Still On The Depo Shot?

The Depo shot is administered to the arm. The shot will release progestin, a hormone, into the body. The progestin, as long as it is still in the system, will prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs thus it prevents ovulation in women. The shot will also thicken the cervical mucus which helps prevent pregnancy because it blocks the sperm from joining with the egg. Unfortunately, like all birth control, it is not 100 per cent effective. It has been found that less than one out of 100 women using the shot have fallen pregnant. This is when the woman taking the shot use it once a year. It is possible for six out of 100 women to get pregnant for those who do not follow the shot directives given by the physician.

Keep in mind that the birth control Depo needs to be used within the first seven days once the period has been started to make certain it takes effect immediately. Basically, as the shot wears off you will find your body may begin to produce hormones appropriately again that stimulate ovulation. Depo is meant to protect you for 12 weeks only. It means you need to get another shot within 12 weeks to make certain you are still protected. You should also abstain from sex during the last week or two, so that the shot should be effective as this could, in some women, cause pregnancy.

The medical industry says you should take a pregnancy test if you went one to two weeks past the shot's 12 week period of effectiveness and especially if you had intercourse within 120 hours or five days before getting the new shot.

There are also some women who have still had their period though lighter being on the birth control shot, meaning it may be possible to get pregnant before the period begins.

I know taking antibotics defects the depo shot and taking women aday vitamins increases your hormones. Both these ways can help get pregnant while on the depo shot.

Yes you can. I got my shot right on time every time it was to be done. There were no missed shots or anything like that. I thought that just because I was having the shot my boyfriend and I were not going to get pregnant. I DID. Nothing is 100%. Not even the Mirena IUD or whatever it is. They put it in and there is a string and if the mucus doesnt cover the string and hold it in place there is a chance during sex or anything other reason it could move or shift and if you have unprotected sex....you may end up pregnant. Use a back up if you don't want to get pregnant.

As far as I know, depo is completely reliable as long as you get your shots on time.

It is not easy to get pregnant after you've taken Debo shot, but if you'd follow some instructions then you can get pregnant as soon as possible. You can find such instructions on the link given below.

There is a very small chance of getting pregnant while on Depo, less than 1% chance. When you go for subsequent shots you have a 2 week window. 2 weeks before its due and 2 weeks after, but my suggestion is not to wait until the last minute, otherwise you might get pregnant!

The depo shot can make you feel like you are pregnant,but I think it is highly unlikely, unless you were already pregnant before you received the injection.My doctor told me that she wouldn't give it to me until I started my period..hope thats helpful

You can not get pregnant if you are on depo vera effective shot. It is different from birth control pills. Depo vera is more effective if you take it on the exact dates.
