Got my depo shot 10days ago i wasnt on my period at the time. My last period was sept 25th i had a urge to pee on a stick n it showed positive. Me n hubby didnt have sex for a few days then we did i thought my 7days was up. I guess not we didnt use a condom. Anyways has this happened b4 i really need an answer i aint went to my ob yet but was hoping i could find some helpful answers.
Really need an answer to what? I can't see you've asked a question? You've asked has 'this happened before?' but I don't know which bit you're referring to. Are you asking if anyone has got pregnant because they didn't take precautions during the 7 days they're supposed to wait for the injection to start working? If that's the question, then yes. That's why you're told to wait.
One of the other reasons it's so important to use other contraception for 7 days, is because if you become pregnant while the shot is in your system, Depo can cause harm to your pregnancy/baby. It has been rated a category X drug by the FDA, for that reason.
Depo is known to give false positive pregnancy test results. Worth getting one done by the doctor, to be sure.
