Random but I'm on the shot now an heard my periods will get messed up but from the looks of the replies to the question it seems lik I won't get a period I don't know if that's true when will I ovulate? When will the shot kick in ? My doctor said around 3months my nurse said 1month if my husband where to cum inside me will I get pregnant? How will I know that I'm not ovulatin if I don't have periods?

Birth control shots are effective after 24 hours of taking it. It is given within five days of your menses even for the first time. In case you want to conceive it is advised that you wait for a certain time before becoming fertile again. A birth control shot can stay in a woman's body and be effective for six to eighteen months. This is due to the storing of the shot in the fat cells of the woman's body who took this shot.

Thus a woman who has taken a birth control shot may take a longer time to become fertile again. But in some cases it may also be a shorter process. Yet a woman who wants to conceive within a year or so is advised to go for shorter birth control measures such as pill, the diaphragm, male and female condoms or spermicides.

I didn't have a period the whole time I was on it (2 years). When I went off of it I bled heavily for 5 weeks STRAIGHT! With severe cramps and headaches, some days I couldn't get out of bed. I have been off of it for 25 months now and I cannot get pregnant. It is unsafe and all women should be aware of it. IT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET.

I was also on the birth control shot for 5 years, without a period and when I stopped taking the shot I got pregnant within 3 months of the last shot. But Ive not had a period since

The birth controle shot has a black-box warning. It's very dangerous and I would suggest another form of birth control, such as the pill or nuva ring.
