Hello and welcome to HCM,
preparation used in contraceptive
pills and depo shots prevent ovulation and/or fertilization.
Technically it is not possible to get pregnant when one is taking depo provers shot.
The depo provers is effective for a period of 12 weeks so it should be taken again after 12 weeks of 1st injection.
The injection should be taken within 5 days of onset of menstruation
Some side effects are commonly seen with the use of depo provera
Irregular menstrual bleeding is a common side effect.
This light pink bleeding may be due to irregular bleeding.
You can take up pregnancy
test if you want to rule out pregnancy.
If you get pregnant despite being on depo provera, the effectiveness of the drug has to be monitored.
Thanks and take care
