Pregnancy chances


Q: I was on the depoprovera birth control shot for almost a year and a half but recently forgot to get my shot updated. I bled for about a week and the bleeding has stopped. I was going to get it redone but me and my long term boyfriend broke up so I saw no reason for it. Recently me and my ex boyfriend have had unprotected sex quite a few times, and he did not "pull out". He knows I am not on birth control anymore and is not worried because he heard the shot should stay in my system for months. I am now over a month late on my shot so I was wondering if I should at all be worried about any chance of me being preganant and if so how soon could i know by?
