I had my first Depo shot three months ago. I was supposed to go get my next one two days ago but I forgot to go and get it. Now my boyfriend wants to have sex. I want to know if the shot is still effective even though I'm two days late getting my next shot?
You have 13 weeks to get your shot if you're outside of those 13 weeks, then you are not guaranteed coverage against pregnancy, & will need extra protection.
Once you get your shot, you'll need to use extra protection for 7 days before you're protected by the Depo Provera shot, again.
