Hi girls! I just found out yesterday that i was pregnant with my third. I went to the doctor today and I'm about 7 weeks. Funny thing is... Ive been on the shot for 6 months! Hmmm little unplanned but it's ok. My husband and I were thinking about it anyway. Anyone know if the depo can have any negative affects on a pregnancy??

Welcome and congrats! I got pregnant while on the pill... I was on medication and it lowered it's effectiveness. I was concerned that something might be wrong with the baby but she's 8 1/2 months now and healthy as can be!

Congratulations!! The only thing I can think of is a tubal pregnancy, you have a higher risk of one conciving on depo. But thats rare. Good luck

I basically conceived on Depo too. I had just switched from the shots to pills in November and got preggers in January while still on the pill. I asked my doctor if either one would have negative affects on the baby and he said no. But you might want to check with your doc just to make sure and make you feel more relieved. Congrats on the pregnancy!! Our babies should be due around the same time!

I talked to my doctor about it and she said it should be fine. Did you guys know that they sometimes give the depo shot to women after they get pregnancy to prevent a miscarrage? Hmm I learn sometime new everyday..

hey girl!!
Congrats!!! I don't think the shot should harm your baby at all...I was on the pill when I got preggers but the shot seems much more full-proof...your man must have sperm of steel!! hehehe,

I have been on one form of BC since I was 18 (am 25 now). In 2004 I got pregnant on the pill and had a m/c in Jan of 2005 with no findings of why. In 2004 - 05 I was on 4 different pills because I had break through bleeding. I finally got on this pill in August of 2005, and low and behold January of 2006 I got pregnant on the pill again. I am beginning to think the BC is not going to work for us. Timing was not really good with us but someone thought it would be a good time. My DH and I planned on TTC this winter, but I guess we will move it up a little!
