I took my depo shot on day 6 of my period, and I had sex 3 days afterwards. Could I be pregnant?

Yes you could be. You needed to wait 7 days after having your shot, before you were covered against pregnancy.
It's important that you find out if you are pregnant as soon as possible, because there are mixed medical opinions on whether or not Depo Provera can cause serious harm to an unborn baby.
If you get a positive test result, you will need to have a blood pregnancy test done by a doctor, to be sure you are pregnant, because Depo Provera can sometimes give a false-positive urine pregnancy test.
