I know girls who have been on it for over 5 years.
after quick googling it seems there is no limit of how long you can be on it but after 2 years bone loss has been reported and when you want to get pregnant it can take up to two years (for the hormones to return to normal levels) perhaps that is where the 2 years came in an she got confused.

Wife was on it for 8 years straight, she didn't go for the shot when she was switching to oral birth control and BAM, she was pregnant 2 weeks after missing the shot.


OP, your woman needs to go see the doc to be sure.

yep you can go on it for extended periods of time.

and hate to tell you this but you should have waited at LEAST a month for the oral to work.

First off, know your information before you speak. Dont accuse someone of being "wrong as sh** unless you educate yourself before you speak, its just plain rude. Just bc they have been on it for over the 2 years, doesnt mean it is according to the manufacturer recommendations. Second off I have worked in the medical field for 17 years now and I teach this information, and I teach it from the package insert that comes with the shot. Here is information directly from Pfizer (the manufacturer of this product):

Risks of Using DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive Injection
1. Losing Calcium from Your Bones
Depo-Provera CI use may decrease the amount of calcium in your bones. The longer you are on Depo-Provera CI the more calcium you may lose. This increases the risk of your bones weakening if you use Depo-Provera CI continuously for a long time (for more than 2 years). The loss of calcium may increase your risk of osteoporosis and broken bones, particularly after your menopause.
If you need a birth control method for more than 2 years, your healthcare provider may ask you to switch to another birth control method or ask you to have a test of your bones before continuing Depo-Provera CI, especially if you have other risks for weak bones. When Depo-Provera CI is stopped, the calcium in bones begins to come back. Your healthcare provider may tell you take calcium and Vitamin D as this may lessen the loss of calcium from your bones.


http://media.pfizer.com/files/produc...traceptive.pdf

Let me also add that we have several porviders that will not renew a prescription for depo once the patient has reached her two year mark. The will switch the patient to another form of BCP and order additional testing for calcium.

However this isnt what the post was about, as I previously stated, the only way to know for sure is to obtain a blood HCG.

The 6 months my wife was on depo provera were the worst 6 months of our marriage.(sexually) It messed with her hormones so badly that sex rarely happened. Stay away from it IMHO.

If you work direct patient care and are teaching patients about the medicine that is perscribed to them you SHOULD NOT, i repeat, should NOT be translating the instructions written in that insert to your own meaning. You specifically said in an early post "YOU CANNOT be on it for more than 2 years at a time." This is FALSE and you are relaying wrong information to patients, definetly a wrong practice. You can be on it for longer than two years per the information YOU posted. And the manufacturer did not state it recommends stopping use after two years as YOU suggested. It says to speak with your health care provider. Every person is different and may not develop complications. So before you attack members on the board, take time to know YOUR information, for your sake, and your patients sake.

As I stated OUR PROVIDERS (AKA DOCTORS) WILL NOT prescribe the medication if the female has been on it for 2 years already. If you notice the insert states that the patient will be switched to another form and CA testing will be done prior to continuing any more depo.This is POLICY for most doctors offices. They switch the patient to another BCP until further tests can be performed. I WAS NOT attacking someone else, I WAS attacked and I defended myself.

And as I said before, why continue to deviate from the OP question which still boils down to get a pregnancy test done?

I have always been told the shot was well shotty. It screwed with you, wasn't as effective. Pills while yes you have to take it everyday, are the better way.

Get her 3 tests, then go to the Doc and Congratulations.
