Kelly - October 24

I was on Depo for 8 years, firstly i found out that after two years i causes bone denisty loss, i suffer from shin spints and i have broken my toe ane thumb from normal sport. i stopped on depo about 7 months ago i just go my period which is now from the light bleeding (very) to heavy (now) for about 3 weeks. I am 31 and my partner and i don't want to get pregnant for the next 6months but jeez at this age?? i probably won't it can take 2 years to get out of your system.... is it worth the chance to just risk it for a few months.... anybody else been on it for this long??

Kelly- Actually, yes- I was on Depo for 7-8 years also. I went off Aug 2006 b/c my husband and I are ttc. I actually went and had a bone density test done b/c I was concerned about that also. It came back normal. I am hoping I am preg this month. My periods returned to normal a month after I went off the shot. However, it's hard to get excited knowing that it can take a year or longer to conceive post-Depo. Wish me luck... :)

OK, question.. I was on Depo for 3 1/2 years and got off it b/c it gave me really bad mood swings, well, I got off of it April 9th, 2007, and around the 23rd of april i bled for a day and a half, but it was a dark brown color. Then, on may 6th i bled again for another day and a half, and then again on june 17th but this time it lasted 4 days, but was still dark brown. Well now, since ive been off I've gained almost 16 pounds (mostly in my b___sts and stomach), my b___sts are sore and i have some white looking goosebump things on my b___sts. My aerolas are a lot bigger now, i havent noticed a big change in my appet_te except that im eating a lot more and i get some stomach pains when i eat. I have taken 2 preg. tests, both neg. What is going on here? Any ideas?

it took me 1 and 1/2 years to get pregnant again its because its still in your system for a while for some it doesnt take that long but for some others it can take longer depending how long you where on the shot


Katt08 - March 4

Hey girls. I am 18 yrs old and have had my last depo shot in september i have not gone back due to irregular spottings and depression. Since i have been of the shot I have been feeling great. My b/f and i are trying to get pregnant b/c he'll be leaving for overseas in a few months. I have noticed I have been feeling very tired nauseous, hungry all the time, tender b___sts and weight gain everywhere. But, i have taken two tests and both were neg. Could this all be in my head for hopes to become pregnant or could i really be. I don't want to have false hope anymore or think i am and not ovulate at all. Can anyone help me?

hi im 18 years old and ive only taken one depo provera shot which was in mid december. I decided not to have another one because i didnt like the side effects. Ive always had unprotected s_x with my bf because we were eachothers first so we both knew we were safe from diseases. We last had s_x 3 weeks ago. This week ive been having pregnant like symptoms such as constant sickness, stomach cramps, back ache, tiredness, food cravings, ive put on 7lbs the last few weeks. When i was on the depo provera i was bleeding pretty much all the time but i havent for over a month now. It feels like im about to come on my period bloating and soreness wise...but i havent. Is it possible im pregnant?


jennifer1389 - November 21

hi well my question is that i only had one dose of depo provera which lasted 3 months... i just hated the way it made me feel i got so depressed and suicide became an issue when my fiance broke up with me well all that is over thank god i just recently hooked up back with a long last love and we got married we want to get pregnant and we have been trying for a couple of months now and im scared that it isme either im infertile or the depo shot has something to do with it. i know its not him because he has two kids with his first wife.... is it just me or should i keep trying.. i just hate the fact that we keep trying and i feel like this time it will finally happen and every month i get disapointed any advice?

This shot is the worse!!!!!!! I got the shot in May and I've been bleeding every day since and still continue to bleed. In July I had unprotected s_x with my now ex. Late july to October I started Vomitting on a daily basis and also feeling nauseous with a headache. October till now the nausea and vomitting is occasional. My b___bs got bigger yay but they hurt like hell!!!! I gained 12 pounds. And being that my hormoes are all messed up due to the shot I can't get a positive test and without a positive test they refuse to give you a ultrasound. I just wanna cry because I know I am preggo! Oh and recently started feeling movements this month. They feel really weird.

Hello I took the depo in may 2010 and I was due for my next injection in august but I never went instead when my period was over in august I had s_x. In september I miss my period and october 6 thru the 18 I spotted sometimes light red and sometimes brown I been having mild cramps in my lower back and morning sickness I took a test 2 weeks ago it was negative I have 2 kids and honestly I don't know what is going on but I really think I'm pregnant I doubt if it is the depo bcause when I got off of it 3 years ago I always have a period no matter what I never miss a period unless I'm pregnant can the test be wrong ?I'm also taking vicodin and tylenol for my toothache anyone please tell me what u think bcause once again I think I am and I don't see why the test could lie I'm also bloated and headaches comes on and off and terrible mood swings and my 2 year old is acting crancky just like my other son use to act when I was pregnant with him

In April I got a pregnancy test done and because it was negative I started my first dose of Depo Provera. Today, not sure why, I bought a pregnancy test and it was positive. Could it be wrong? Concerned.
