Can you become pregnant when on the DEPO shot?

I am on the depo shot and yet I think I might be pregnant.

Depo-Provera is a 99% plus effetive in preventing pregnancy if used orrectly. The shot should be given every 12 weeks without fail. On average, there is still a 97% effectiveness. If you are experiencing any fatigue,nausea,vomitting, dizziness, et. , see your doctor to evaluate whether you are pregnant


Answer by  Mary (2095)

The short answer is yes. All birth control methods have some percentage of risk of pregnancy, such as the average birth control bill only offers 99% effectiveness. Depo-Provera offers a higher percentage, but there is still a change of pregnancy. The risk is also greater, meaning there is a more likely a chance that the baby will have problems.

Yes, you can get pregnant while on the depo shot. I will tell you this from personal experience.. They told me that it was one of the highest effective shots out there when I got it. If you had unprotected sex you need to find out for sure.

It is possible to get pregnant while using Depo Provera, but the risk is low if the shot is always used correctly -- about 1%.
