I got the depo shot on jan 19 and had unprotected sex

Patient: I got the depo shot on jan 19 and had unprotected sex the day I got it and for weeks after could I be pregnant?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.A backup contraception of 7 days is needed even when yu are on depo, when you start it for the first time. Hence, there are fair chances of pregnancy. Do a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy and act accordingly.Hope this helped.Regards
