I had gotten my Depo shot on July 25th Monday , and I had unprotected sex on the 30th. 6 days on the Depo shot and I was supposed to wait 7 days after the shot . So on the 1st of August 3ish days later I took plan b. Just to be safe .but now I had sex again on the same day of taking Plan B ! Am I safe ? Or should I take Plan B again .
No, Plan B doesnt cover you for future episodes of sex but no you cant take more. You are only supposed to use it once a cycle. Hopefully you will be okay. They tell you to wait seven days or use back up for a reason-it takes that long for Depo to begin working. At this point all you can do is wait and see. Plan B will likely mess up your cycle and putting that blast of hormones on top of Depo, smh, but what is done is done. I cant understand why you ladies are told to use back up or to wait and you dont THEN you worry about it? It is your body and if you dont want to be pregnant, you need to follow the directions! Pretty straight forward it seems. Chances are best that you wont get pregnant. Fertility is about a 3-4 day window only each month and more than likely you were okay but that depends on where you were at in your cycle when you got Depo. If you got in in the first 5 days of your period, you should be protected right away. If it is any other time, you are supposed to use back up (condoms) for the first seven days or abstain for the first seven days otherwise there is a possibility that you have ovulated and might become pregnant before the Depo has a chance to work. At this point all you can do is wait and see if your period shows up (and with Depo along with PlanB, it might not but that doesnt automatically mean you are pregnant-women often stop menstruating on Depo and Plan B often delays the next period) if you are more than a week late, do a pregnancy test. If it comes up negative then you managed to dodge that bullet but be SURE that you get your next injections ON TIME then you wont have any breaks in protection. If you are late getting a shot, you have to have a pregnancy test, get your shot and wait or use back up again so make sure you get your next injections on time!
