I have been on depo shot for 11 months and my boyfriend and I just recently broke up but I told him that I thought I was pregnant. The last time we had sex was 2 months ago but I haven't been showing any signs of pregnancy. I don't know I guess I am just scared. I just want to know could you get pregnant while on depo you know with me being 17 and all.
I got scared like this because the last time we had intercourse he said that he came inside of me but now he puts it on everything that its was just pre-come. That is exactly why we are not together now because he told me if he can't come inside of me then he doesn't want to be with me.
Please help me.

I'm Sorry to Hear Your Story
I'm sorry to hear ur story hun..Yes you can get pregnant with depo and with any other contraceptive in the market...Abstinence is the only 100% effective contraceptive..You can buy a test in a supermarket or a drugstore nearest your area. Since it's been 2 months since you had sex it is almost gauranteed that it will show up if you are positive or negative...But since you are not experiencing any symptoms of pregnancy whatsover I doubt that you are pregnant..But I suggest you test just to be sure..

Depo
I am a perfect example that the depo dosen't always work for everyone I was on the shot for 6 years and now I have a 4yr old boy and after having him I tried the pill took it everyday at the same time never missed a pill and was blessed with another baby who is now 3. So I got my tubes tied if this dosen't work I don't know what works I do know I will go crazy though. Have you taken a test yet?

Did you miss any shots when you got pregnant?.. Or it can happen without missing shots?

No method of contraception is 100% but i'm wondering why you think you could be pregnant if you're having no symptoms and didn't have sex recently?
If you're that worried i'd suggest always using a condom as well as your depo.

Yes, but if she's on depo and wants to double up then use condoms too. I'm aware they break but it's adding a barrier method if she's that worried so I have no idea about why you felt the need to make such an obvious comment.

If you are at all concerned you could be pregnant, why wouldn't you take a pregnancy test to find out for sure?
