I got off the depo shot 3 months ago. I haven't had a period, all I've had was spotting and the last time was February 14. So I'm wondering is it possible for me to have gotten pregnant even though supposedly it stays in your system for 9 months? I was on it for a year but had to stop taking birth control because of my depression. I recently had unprotected sex multiple times with my fianc

Yes. How do you think people with irregular periods get pregnant?

I had my one and only Depo shot back in June 2012 and only had one period since then in December 2012. I am now 7 weeks and 3 days pregnant.

Yes. Your body can release an egg days before you should expect to start your period. If you are having unprotected sex during this time, it can result in pregnancy.
After a year and a half of being on a depo, I stopped taking mine in April. I didn't get my "regular' period when I should have. I found out I was pregnant the end of May. (1st pregnancy).

Have you tested?

Of course you can.ovulation,comes before bleeding. So,at any time you could have ovulated and gotten pregnant before you got your first period after stopping depo. I have known a few people who tried to conceive and gotten pregnant 3 to 4 months after their last depo shot.
