Can I get pregnant while on Depo???

Patient: I’ve been on Depo provera for over 2 years now. Recently my bf came in me while having unprotected sex. Is it still possible that i can become pregnant even if i’m on Depo?

 

 

Symptoms: No symptoms its been 5 days.

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Depot is a contraception and yet has a failure rate of 0.5 %. Keeping this in mind, I s uggest you do a pregnancy test after 20 days of the last intercourse to rule out pregnancy.Hope this helped.Regards
