    Question Chances of getting pregnant after getting off the Depo shot?


    So I recently had unprotected sex with my boyfriend cuz we do want a baby and I have been off my shot for 3 weeks. My last shot was on April 30th so I was due for another shot July 23rd. I've been on the shot for almost a year so I only had like maybe 6 or 7 shots. I heard sometimes the shot stays in ur system for months after. A day before my shot was due I had spotting that lasted for a few days. Me and my boyfriend had sex last Saturday-Monday we had unprotected sex through those days. Do I have a high chance of getting pregnant or did the shot mess me up and I probably don't have the shot out of my system yet? plz help me with this question. its way too soon to get a pregnancy test and I will in a few weeks.

    It depends on your body. Some people get pregnant at the thought of getting off their birth control, for some it takes their body a while to get back to "normal". It could be a couple of months...

    Whoever said anything was possible obviously never tried slamming a revolving door.

    if you were ovulating then your chances are good.

    If you want to get pregnant, keep have unprotected sex for at least a month and pick up some early-detection pregnancy tests. Not much point in calculating your chances, just keep trying and checking and it will probably happen in a few months or less.
