Patient : I went to the doctor in March to get the depo shot for birth control and never went back for the next 3month dose.i had a period on August 31 to September 4, then the next month it came on October 4 to the October . Now this month I didn't get a period and it's been 11 days late. I have a boyfriend we have unprotected sex, just trying to figure if I'm pregnant. I went to the doctor n took a test but she said it is too early to detect. I just want to know how does the depo shot work, can I even get pregnant or what?
