- Q: i had my baby in april and bleed for about 3 months, felt like forever! i got the birthcontrol shot right after that(right after brith) its now january and no period. i ve had protected sex but i just now feel a little cramping. oh every month after july i take a pregnancy test and its a digital one all say negative .has anyone ever had this problem . when do i get my period?
- A: It is entirely normal for you to not have periods while on the depo shot. Some women stop them completely while on the shot, others have some light bleeding or spotting. It's perfectly safe to not have your period, and it should return quickly if you stop using the shot.If you prefer to have periods, you can switch to another method such as the pill, the ring, or an IUD. I hope this helps!
- Depo Birth Control Shot and Pregnancy!! Please help!!?
- Q: I'm 25 years old and was on Depo (the birth control shot) from the age of 18 to the age of 23. I had no periods when I was on the shot. My last shot was approximately Aug of 2006. I was off birth control for quite some time after that and my periods came back approx. 5-6 months later. About a 6 months after being off the shot...I started on other forms of birth control (mainly Nuva Ring). I was on Nuva Ring for probably about a year then switch to Yaz for about 3-4 months. I stopped taking Yaz back in January or February 2009 (this year) to become pregnant. It is now almost August and I am still not pregnant. I have regular periods and we try to get pregnant a couple times a week, if not three. I've been counting my calendar days and try to be more "active" around the recommended 14th Day of my period cycle. My question is...Does anyone know if Depo can keep you from getting pregnant years after you've been off of it, even though you are having regular periods?The most frustrating thing is that my OBGYN won't see me for infertility until I've been trying for a full year. They also said I have to be careful using the term "infertility" because insurance companies don't like that term and won't pay for your visit. Great. I'm just kinda bummed out all together about this. Any help or advice would be great thank you!
- A: I think your okay it's only been 6 months off any birth control and it's common for it to up to a year to become preg. with normal fertility. Just keep trying and it will happen when it supposed to!Good Luck~baby dust
