Is it possible to get pregnant that way? I had bleeding problems, I tried to stop it by taking oral contraceptives and when I went to the doctor he gave me premarin, is it possible that these could have reduce the effectiveness of depo/

Hi wissyboo - I'm guessing (hopefully correctly), that ur doing depo injections? If so, irregular bleeding is fairly common 4 the first 6 mos. For some, it doesn't happen at all & for some it might take longer than 6 mos 4 ur body 2 adjust 2 it. I took Depo 4 endometriosis 2 *stop* my periods alltogether which it did wonderfully. No more endo pain, heavy periods, PMS, etc. Depo basically tricks ur body into thinking ur pregnant, which stops ovulation, so there's almost no risk of becoming pregnant while on it (another reason I love it!). I'm not sure why the premarin. The only times I've taken that is 2 get my periods back after coming off depo and when I was freaking after not having a period for 7 mos 4 no reason. I can ask the GYN at the clinic I work in Monday, but the way ur question was set up, I can't post on it again. If ur still looking 4 an answer or another opinion, feel free 2 look me up on my profile! Best wishes 4 u - Echo
