I am currently taking the Depo because I get ovirian cysts but would like to know if it's possable go get pregnant on this shot.?
No form of contraception is 100% guaranteed, but I used Depo for 18 years, & am comfortable saying that as long as you weren't pregnant before you had your first Depo shot, & as long as you have future shots on time, then you will not become pregnant.
It can in fact take a couple of years to get your fertility back once you stop using Depo.
Depo is used to chemically castrate male sex offenders, in prisons. It's a pretty powerful & effective drug.
It is thought to help protect against cervical cancer, but it's thought that it may increase breast cancer risk. This could possible be due to the parabens that are in the injections.
