Depo

I missed my depo shot on the 22 July 2021 and on the 23 July 2021 to 26 July 2021, we had unprotected sex with my boy friend. Can I get pregnant? If yes, how soon can I know the results. Thank you.

The depo shot is effective for 13 weeks from the previous injection.  If it is longer then you are at risk for pregnancy. 

You should wait 2-3 weeks to do a pregnancy test

I've been on the DEPO shot for years, then I switched to the i.u.d method on October 23, 2020 but then got it removed a few months later. I started the DEPO shot again on June 28, 2021 then had unprotected sex several times after, could I be pregnant?

If you went from one method to another you would be protected against pregnancy. 

If you restarted depo after not being on anything then you need to wait 7 days for pregnancy protection.

My date for the depo shot was 13 July 2021 and I took my next shot a day before the due date which is 12 July 2021 because I have unprotected sex can I get pregnant or what are the effects of doing that.

Getting the shot a day before it is due is fine.  You are still protected against unplanned pregnancy. 

Hi I have been bleeding for more than a week now. I had my first depo shot last May. Is this an effect of the shot?

Yes, depo can cause irregular bleeding. Please see more info here on this Depo FAQ.

I missed my depo shot which was due for the 4th June 2021 ... I haven't been to get a shot and have been having unprotected sex the whole time... I haven't gotten my period yet as well could I be pregnant?

If you did not get your depo shot on time and you had unprotected sex then you are at risk for pregnancy.

My depo was supposed to expire on 5th June 2021 and I had intercourse on 4th June 2021 but I got the injection on 5th June 2021, I there a possibility of getting pregnant?

If you got your depo shot on time you are not at risk for pregnancy. See this Depo FAQ for more information. 

I've been on the depo shot for 3-4 years now on time with all my shots and had sex and no pull out method, its been a week and still no bleeding could I be pregnant?

Many people on depo do not have regular periods. If you have had your shots on time you would be protected against pregnancy. Check out this Depo FAQ page for more information. 

If you are concerned you can do a home pregnancy test, contact the Corner, or your primary care provider for a pregnancy test.
I've been on depo for years (and never late). I didn't realize that my recent appointment was given to me two weeks late, so instead of getting my shot on the 12th week I got it on the 14th week. Unknowingly, I had sex 16 days after my shot, pulled out method but worried about pre-cum. Was I protected at all? When will it be best to take a test?

If you are first starting the shot or the shot is late you need to wait 7 days to have protection. 

If it was 16 days after your shot there is no reason to think you are at risk of pregnancy.

Hi! May 14, 2021 was the last day of my period. I got my first Depo Shot last May 20,2021. I had unprotected sex last May 31, 2021. Will I get pregnant? I hope not. Looking forward for the answer!
Please read the DEPO FAQ. Depo is effective 7 days after your first shot.  If you get the next shots on time you have continued protection against pregnancy.  
Yes, you could be at risk of getting pregnant if this is your first shot or if you got this shot late. It takes 7 days for the depo shot to provide protection after the first shot or when restarting Depo after not getting the shot on time.

Let's say I had unprotected sex yesterday and today then had the depo shot today evening..could be at a risk of getting pregnant
