It sounds like your hormones may be slightly off since stopping the depo.  You may want to repeat a pregnancy test . 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health to schedule an appointment to find the type of birth control that is right for you. 

I had sex on the day of my ovulation with a condom. I do not know if it leaked or broke but i am guessing that it didn't. I was fingered afterwards and there might have been semen on the fingers. I have been nauseous for a few weeks now and I am six days late for my period. It isn't always so regular and I have been stressed, I have hormonal imbalance and have changed my diet. My breasts have been sore and tender but that is a very common PMS symptom for me. But I cannot tell whether I am pregnant or just purely late.

If your period is more than a week late take home pregnancy test or all Corner Health to schedule a pregnancy test and to discuss the type of birth control that is right for you. 

I missed my depo on the 17 of August. I had a shot on the 03 of September and had unprotected sex on the 07 of September. Can I be pregnant?

The depo is effective 7 days after the injection is given. If you had unprotected sex on Sept 7 after getting the shot on Sept 3rd you could be at risk for pregnancy. 

Greetings to you. I stated using Depo in 2018 after giving birth, and since then I never been to my periods, so this year on May 2021. I was supposed to get my shot and I didn't go and I didn't see my period since then. On the 24 Sep 2021 I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, is it possible for me to get pregnant?

It may take many months to get your normal period back after stopping depo. 

Any time you have sex without using contraception/birth control you are at risk for pregnancy .

A friend was supposed to take a second depo shot on 19th of July, but missed it and had unprotected sex on 4thof September and took p2 pills, later had sex on 9th of September and took another p2 pills, she then later put a depo injection on 10th and did sex on 17th and since has stomach cramping, nauseous and severe mood swings, could she be pregnant?

From what you described your friend has had a lot of extra hormones.  In order to know if she is pregnant she should take a pregnancy test.
