If I take my shot in the morning, is it effective right now or in say 2 days?
Two things? First of all-is this your first shot? And if yes, it was the first shot, where in your cycle are you (when was your last period)? If this is not your first shot, and you got this shot on time, then you are continuously protected. If this is your first shot and you got it within the first 5 days of your period, then you are protected right away. If it is not given during the first five days of your period then you need to wait a week or use condoms and spermicide for a week (seven consecutive days) then after the first week you are protected from pregnancy.
