I have been on the Depo shot for 4 years now. I haven't missed a shot and I always get them done on time. Me and my boyfriend had sex and he came in me. Is there a chance that I could get pregnant?
No. Not unless you are overdue for a shot or were late getting one recently, & didn't use extra protection as directed in such circumstances.
The Manufacturer advises that you should not be on Depo Provera longer than 2 years, unless you have no other option for contraception. This is due to the risks involved with this Drug. One of the main risks is your bones thinning, leading to Osteoporosis, but there are others, such as cancer.
You can find the info on the Manufacturer's website.
