HELP - Am I just being paranoid? Or could I be pregnant?


Q: I began the depo-provera birth control shot in February. So I've been on it for about a month. The reason I started taking it was for my period, I had horrible cramps. I was told I may not have a period on it. I was supposed to start my period Thursday, march, 7th. But that Monday, the 4th, I had sex. We used a condom and I don't think it broke. I never started my period. Sunday, the 10th, my boyfriend entered me once or twice without a condom and then he put one on. We were caught in the moment and just forgot about it at first. We got to thinking about it and it was making us nervous. He never ejaculated inside me at any point. Even with the condom on. He pulled out and then ejaculated, both times we had sex. Is there a chance I could be pregnant? I think we are just being paranoid, but I don't know if I'll get my period as confirmation that I'm not. Because of the birth control. Please response!
