... her period then we had sex on the 31st I am curious to know would she be protected by the time we had sex since it was 7 days later. I can't stop worrying about her being pregnant
A late answer but useful for anyone else finding this question at a later date:
If you had your first shot during the first 5 days of your period, then you did not need to wait before you were covered against pregnancy.
If you were outside of the first 5 days of your period when you were given your first Depo shot, then you needed to wait 7 days before you were covered.
Once you follow those rules, 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.
