hi lisa ;
Depo is a shot used for contraception .The action of one shot lasts for about 3 months after that it will go away.Till the action of Depo is present you will not become pregnant.So wait for 3 months to finish the effect of Depo then you can try for pregnancy.The sick feeling may be due to hormonal effect ;it will go away soon then don't take another shot as you want to have a baby.
thanks

What is the depo injection you are taking? Because depo injection are usually given for contraception. Hence I would require a bit more clarity in your question.

Homeopath Dr. Krupali Devkar's  Response
hello dear, if u r planning for a baby, kindly avoid any kind of contraception.Depot efects will wane in around 2 to 3 months.The sick feeling is because of hormones in the shot.

Hi, I have been on the depo provera shot for the past 7 years. I had been experiencing some hot/cold feelings and asked a doctor if i could be going through menopause. he said that I would not go through menopause while I was on the depo shot. So I just wanted to confirm this is true and if it is will I go through menopause when I come off the shot which I may not do for a few more years? Thanks

I received my first Depo Provera shot in the middle of January of this year. It s been a little over 4 months since then, and I ve decided to discontinue my shots due to terrible side affects. One of those side affects is consistent and horrible acne on my face and back. Over the past few months, my back acne has gotten better, but in return, my face has gotten worse. What do I do? How long do I have to wait until my skin goes back to normal?

For the past 5 months I have been experiencing strange bumps and a skin rash. I first noticed it as what appeared as hives on my butt, it spread to all over my butt. After a couple months of constantly searching for an answer I went to the doctor. They said it looked like hives and could be an allergic reaction. I was prescribed a steroid cortisone cream which cleared the bumps but they returned once I stopped using it. The last month my legs have been extremely itchy with small bumps on the back of my legs. I just got another depo shot and it seemed to make it worse. There are red bumps everywhere on my lower body. Could this be due to my depo shot that I started late September?
