Depo

I had an appointment January 6 2020 to get my depo injection but decided to switch to the pills.. my appointment to switch wasn't until January 13 2020 that following week and i happen to have sex early that morning January 13 around 1am.. Am i safe for not getting getting pregnant, I also started my pills that same day too January 13 2020.

You are most likely protected against unplanned pregnancy.  

My depo shot was due January 20 and I missed it. It's February 4. The last time I had unprotected sex was February 1st, but he pulled out. That was the last time we had unprotected sex after I missed the shot. Can I still get pregnant?

It is unlikely that you are at risk of pregnancy when your shot is 2 weeks late.  You should get a pregnancy test before getting your next injection.  

I was on Depo-Provera for about maybe 10-11 months well i got on when my son was about 2/3 months in november/december of 2018. I didnt like the side effects of the medication so my last shot was maybe may/june of 2019. my son turned 1 on sept 4 2019 and my next shot was due in the month of september but i told my doctor to take me off so I didnt get the shot in september. i been having unprotected sex every since with my fiance. December 26-28 2019 i had a light bleeding with cramps. Took multiple pregnancy test but they either come out negative and an error. how soon will i be able to get pregnant again?

It can take up up to a year, sometimes more to get pregnant after stopping depo.  If you have concerns please schedule an appointment with you primary care provider or gynecologist or at Corner health center

I took my last depo shot in November 2018 and I got my periods back October 2019 even thou they weren't normal and occurred for 2 month.November 2019 I got my periods on the 28th only and they were normal .Then December they occurred twice again,14th and 28th but 28th wasn't normal and took 3 days out of 6 days.My husband wants a baby but I don't know what's happening I don't concieve

After using Depoprovera for contraception if may take time to get a normal cycle.  If your cycle is not back to normal in the next 3 months schedule an appointement with your primary care provider or gynecologist.  

I get the depo shot every 3 months and I inject it myself. Last time, there was a little bit left in the syringe because the plunger stopped depressing. Probably 1/4-1/3 of a ml. Could I get pregnant before my next shot?

The drug manufacturer says that the dose is 150 mg for protection against pregnancy.  You may opt to inject the amount your missed.  

I had an appointment for my second shot on 10/14 but had to reschedule it for the following day. Am I still protected since it was in the same week as my original scheduled appointment?

The recommendation is that you should not be more than 2 weeks late for the depo shot , otherwise you can get pregnant.

I've been on the Depo Shot since July 27,2017. I have never missed or been late for a shot. On January 6,2019 at about 4p.m I received my depo shot. On Jan 7 at around 9pm boyfriend went to bathroom and washed his hands then fingered me. After made out for 5 mins with full clothing on, a little bit of grinding. I did not touch him or give him a "hand job" . Since then I've taken 12 pregnancy test every month since then all of which have been negative ( also suffer with anxiety disorder). I also had a full blown period on April 6 ( the day of next shot due date) but I took the shot on April 7th. Also boyfriend says he never ejaculated nor had any semen on his hands never. Do you think there is reason for any more concern about potential pregnancy?

 If you are getting your depo shots on time there is almost zero chance you could get pregnant. The sexual activity you describe does not put you at risk for pregnancy.  I am concerned about your anxiety.  Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your health care provider to discuss further.  

I've been on depo for 3 months now and have been experiencing break through bleeding since then. I plan to stop. How long will the break through bleeding last and exit out of my system?

It is hard to predict when the bleeding will stop.  The depo will slowly be out of your system and your cycles will return to normal.   If you are sexually active you should schedule an appointment to start another type of contraception to prevent pregnancy.  

Got my first depo shot on the 2nd of November last year and bled for good 2 weeks then my second shot was due on the 2nd of February so got the Sayana press shot on the 1st of February then I had unprotected sex the next day after the shot, am I protected against pregnancy?

According to your dates, you received your shot on time, and you are not at risk for pregnancy.  ( What does Sayana press refer to??) 

So I was on my shot and then I miss it for month, my period was irregular since I stared it it become short and twice a moth. This moth that I didn't take it I haven't got my period and I took a pregnancy test and come out negative. Should I worry?

Periods can become irregular with the use of depo.  If you do not use birth control and have sex you are at risk for pregnancy.  You can get your shot or another type of birth control to prevent pregnancy.  If you haven't had a period in 2 weeks you should repeat the pregnancy test.  Also, remember to use condoms to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.
