Depo

Do Depo shot have effects if you did not had sex for those 3 months?

Depo prevents pregnancy during the 3 months after your shot. People do experience side effects even if they have not had sex. 

Hi . I've Gotten the depo shot around oct of 2020 but had sex a few times since then unprotected but gotten my period dec of 2020 just recently jan 7th 2021 i had unprotected sex which he did the pullout method and i was told i had to wait to get the shot so i did nd my reup shot was between jan-15 and the 19th but i had unprotected sex the 20th which that day he ejactulated inside of me and the 21st of january which he pulled out . I was wondering if am i pregnant

If your shot was due on January 19th and you had unprotected sex after that you are at risk for pregnancy.

I'm on the depo shot when am I at the riskiest time to get pregnant while having unprotected sex?

Your very first shot-wait 7 days for protection.  After that , as long as you get your shots at the correct time you are not at risk for pregnancy.  

My depo shot was due on the 21/01 I didn't go for it and I had unprotected sex on that same day l.. was I still protected or not? Is it possible that I could become pregnant?

You were not technically late for your shot when you had unprotected sex so there is little risk in pregnancy. 

Please schedule to have your shot or to talk about another type of birth control that is right for you

Can you still get your period whilst on the 3 month deppo shot?

Yes, some women experience regular periods and/or irregular bleeding while on the depo shot. 

i had my deppo shot in October, i had unprotected sex on 25 Dec 2020 as well as 14 jan 2021 my next appointment was 21 January 2021 which i didnt go to. i feel kinda weird 2...can i be pregnant?

You are protected against pregnancy until your shot was due on January 21st.  

If you are feeling weird then you should schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

Hey me and my partner had sex with no protection but I am on the depo shot and I got my shot on December 4th and the next appointment is February 24th is it possible I could get pregnant?

You are protected against unplanned pregnancy if you got your shot on December 4th.

Your next depo is due Feb 10-Feb 24th. It is a good idea to schedule the following appointment before you leave the clinic.

Good day, I had my 1st depo shot on the 25th of Nov 2020 and may you kindly advice when is my next due date  as I forgot to ask the nurse at the clinic

I had my second shot of depo on the 14/11/2020, then had unprotected sex on the 26th/12/2020, my next shot was on the 9th jan 2021,but i skipped it and first week of jan i was spotting brown. Can i be pregnant?

If there was more than 12 weeks between your shots then you are at risk for pregnancy 

Call Corner health Center or your primary care provider to get a pregnancy test .

My depo shoot is has finished today but am still not experiencing my menstrual period when is it going to come

It can take several months for a normal menstrual  cycle to return. 

If you are not using another type of birth control then you are at risk of becoming pregnant .
