I've been on depo for a while now, and I way always told not to have sex 2 weeks before every shot injection. Why is that? or is it a myth, like tall tale?
A mixture of both. You could abstain before your first shot to ensure no pregnancy exists, after that, there is no point with every shot as you know you are protected.
As long as you get your shots on time you don't need to abstain from sex before your shots.
When you have your first shot, you may have to wait 7 days before having unprotected sex, depending on whether you get the shot during the first 5 days of your period or not, but after that, if you get your future shots on time, you are covered continuously.
