So I got my depo shot 3 days before my menstraul cycle and I had inter course with my boyfriend I just want to know if I'm protected any advise please!
Hormonal birth control takes 14 days to become effective if not started while menstruation was occuring. So, if you were not bleeding while they gave you the shot, you're unprotected for the next 2 weeks. They should have mentioned this to you. Even getting the shot one day before your period would mean you are unprotected for 2 weeks.
