Ovulating while on the depo shot?


Q: I received my first shot january 16th,2012, i got my second shot april 16th 2012 and am now on my 4th week of being on the second shot. the first 3 months for my first shot i was having vaginal bleeding, i would stop bleeding then ovulate for a few days and start bleeding again. i was not sexually active from january up until may 4th, 2012. i have had unprotected sex twice on may 5th and once may 9th, my partner ejaculated all three times. May 9th, I was ovulating before and after i had sexual intercourse, he ejaculated and i am still ovulating today. i know there's a very low chance but in my case is pregnancy possible if i am ovulating even though the shot is supposed to stop ovulation? which it hasn't.
