I recently switched back to the shot. I was suppose to go back for my third month shot on August 19th but missed it. So they rescheduled me for September 1st to go back and get it. Which I did. But then I had unprotected sex two days after that, is there a chance I could be pregnant?
- Is the shot that you had on Sep 1st within 13 weeks from your previous shot? If yes, the effect of the medication is still there in your body, meaning the chances of pregnancy are very low even with an unprotected sex.
- If your shot on Sep 1st is greater than 13 week from your previous shot and if that day was within the first 5 days from the start of your periods, then the medication starts working from the day of the injection.
- But, if it Sep 1st shot was greater than 13 weeks and it's greater than 5 days from the start of your periods, then medication will not start working immediately and it's recommended to use non-hormonal methods like condoms, for the next 3- 4 weeks from the day of the injection. Hope this helps.
