04/14/2008

Question:

i went off depo on march 11,2003 and I still don`t have a period could i still get pregnet without one? It has been 5 years and i want to have a baby soon. any advice?

Answer:

You could get pregnant if you haven't been using contraception since discontinuing Depo Provera. The fact that you haven't had a period in such a long time, is not normal. It is unlikely that you are ovulating and therefore pregnancy will be very difficult to achieve. You need to be evaluated to determine the cause of you not ovulating.
