I had my first shot the 5th of this month while I had my period (2nd day of period) and I had unprotecred sex the 7th (he came inside of me) and I'm kind of frinking out cause I've read that if you have the shot it protects you right away by much 24 hours to take effect. Could there be any chance of me being pregnant, help please! I'm kind of desperate!
No, you will not become pregnant from having sex, providing you had the shot during the first 5 days of your period.
You are covered by Depo for 12 weeks, regardless of any bleeding you experience in between shots.
You do not have periods on Depo. A period is flushing out the lining of your womb, including an unfertilised egg.
You do not produce an egg when on Depo. What you are experiencing is break-through hormonal bleeding. This can last until you have your 3rd Depo shot. By then, it usually has stopped all together.
You may get all sorts of hormonal symptoms on Depo, such as bleeding, bleeding after sex, pregnancy like symptoms (because Depo tricks your body into thinking you're pregnant, to prevent you releasing eggs each month), such as bloating, sort breasts, lower back ache (Depo softens the ligaments in your back, as if preparing it to expand to make room for a growing baby), mood swings etc. Most of these symptoms pass as you get your next couple of shots.
