Pharmacy/depo provera to perlutal
Hi Dr.Ravindra I have some questions for you.I had a baby on february and after that i got the depo provera shot and i had to go back to get my shot again on june 24,2015 and i didnt because i was going to start getting a shot of perlutal but i have not had a period because of the depo provera shot so i am wondering when should i get the shot if i dont have a period anymore would it work effectively and right away?
After pregnancy, the resumption of periods usually signals the onset of ovulation and hence the risk of pregnancy. However generalizations like this are notorious for being false.
Depoprovera will give you protection for about 6 months, and since you have taken perlutal the safe period has been enhanced. I wuld suggest you use an addition contraceptive method till you get your periods and then continue on either depo provera or perlutal, which ever you prefer. Till you get your periods there is little risk of pregnancy,but one can never tell. SO use of a barrier will give you total protection, and after your periods begin you may choose any contraceptive.
All the best
