Is it possible to get pregnant on Depo shot?
RainHall posted:
I've been on the Depo shot for almost 9 months. So, that's about 3 shots. Between my first and second shot, I started cramping. I figured that it was just my body getting ready to start it's period. It went away and now I'm about 2 months into my second shot and I'm cramping, I have irregular bowel movements, headaches, and I've been spotting a little bit. I'm not sure if these are symptoms or just side effects. Can any one please shed some light for me?

I would be giving your doc a call. I've never been on Depo, so I dont have any personal experience with it. Of course there is always a possibility of pregnancy when having unprotected intercourse. Good luck.
