Take a TEST Ashley... Be safe especially cause if you are your first trimester is the most crucial and you need to be careful

I was on the depo last year and stopped since my period was going for a month straight. I didn't like the side effects and decided to not get the next dose. I figured i would let my hormone levels get back to normal before starting the pill. We tried the pull out method for one month. I knew the statistics of the effectiveness but thought that since my hormone levels were off what were the chances. Needless to say i got pregnant with baby #2. Big surprise but worked out since our first was almost four.

NOTHING is 100%, I've personally never heard of it but it's possible. you should just take a test to give yourself a sense of relief, if it's negative then you should ask the Dr if this is a side affect for you. everyone is different.

It happen to me when I want to Plan to get pregnant I have to get off depo and wait for my cycle to start normal it took about 6 months then finally got pregnant. Every woman are different but once you get off and your period is back to normal that is when you can Plam to have baby

I was on birth control for 16 years, took me one week to get pregnant. Everyone is different. She is having changes in her breasts, not using protection - GET A TEST DONE. You have all the signs. Start taking care of your body NOW.

Yes, you can get pregnant on any birthcontrol pill. it is not 100%. No matter how long you have been taking it. It happened to a few people I knew. Not just one.



Pregnancy test is the best way. Could get a false negative - never a false positive on a PT. Good luck! I had sore breasts IMMEDIATLY when having my son. And instantly swelled. I mean in the first week.

Go and get a test for sure. But the depo shot can stop your period ... how long have you been on it? From personal experience the shot completely stopped my period.

I was on depo for 7 years prior to going off of it. Depending on how long you were on it, it can take a while for things to get back to normal. It took literally 11 mo for my cycle to start back after my last shot. It took me another year to get pregnant. I have known people to get pregnant right away. I would definitely take a pregnancy test, but keep in mind it could also be your body readjusting to your normal level of hormones. Good luck

GetTing off depo does crazy things to your body! I was on it 1 year after my first son and when I stopped had no issues. I was 25yrs old. After my 2nd son I was on it for 2 years. I didn't get a period for 8 months. Then it was sporting and heavy bleeding on and off every two Weeks for 2 months then pretty normal for a few months and now is weird again. Horrible headaches, breast tenderness, feeling sick to my stomach were all things I had. In reading online forms I found this is very common. I would talk to your dr. our hang on and wait it out. If you're very worried take a test to ease your mind. Hope this helps. do some online reading of what to expect it'll help too.

This sounds strange but look at your "lady bits" the inside lips will turn a slight shade of purple after you get pregnant. If your boobs are changing, you notice the purple hue,& you are not bleeding you should go to your dr. You can get free pregnancy test at your local health department. Some other signs of pregnancy are changes in your sleep habits, extra moody, extra weepy, light cramping...these are also all signs that you could be starting. The best way is to just take a test. Good luck!

I was on depo for a year and when I finally got off it took 3 months for my cycle to get back to normal. My boobs hurt too and felt very tender off and on for about 2-3 weeks. That's a symptom of your body readjusting from the hormones. If you look it up online, you will see many women experience breast pain or tenderness after getting off of the depo. I was not pregnant. The depo overall was awful on my body, with weight gain and no sex drive. I am glad I am done with it depo and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Then I would defenitly take a test. Just buy a cheap one from the store if you don't want to go to the DR just yet. My sister n law bought like 5 from the $1 store and they were all Positive. CVS has cheap ones as well and if you get it saying POSITIVE then go to the DR. Personal Question... do your nipples look a little bigger with bumps like goose bumps on them cause that's a sign as well.

If your BOOBS hurt and your feeling sick then that's a HUGE HHHHMMM... when was your last Period? cause usually you don't get preggers right away getting off the Depo cause the HORMONE LEVEL is higher then the pill.

When you get off the DEPO your Period usually changes and is ABNORMAL for a while cause technically it takes about 3-6 months before all the HORMONES are out of your SYSTEM. But you should have some kind of spotting, my period looked as if I was ending not starting and only lasted a few days and that was for a few months. When was the last time you had a period?
