Hi, I was just wondering I’ve been on a depo

Patient: Hi, I was just wondering I’ve been on a depo needle for a 1 year and 5 months now and I keep reading this …’If you get your first Depo-Provera shot later than five days after your period, you will need to use condoms for the first seven days following the shot’Does this apply to me because I’m always a week early on getting my shot? And I never know when my period is because I haven’t had it in so long so I was wondering if that applies to me or just people getting the depo shot for the first time?
