... wait for seven days before having sex but I did have sex on.the sixth day and he didn't pull out. Can I get pregnant.. if yes will the depo mess the pregnancy up or I am safe..since the sperm lives up to 3 days
Yes you could be pregnant given the time you had the shot & had sex. There are also concerns that Depo may harm the potential baby.
Sperm can live up to 6 days inside a woman, but that isn't really relevant to your situation, as you re likely to have been ovulating at around the time you had sex anyway. Most women are somewhere around day 14, but it is not exact.
I'd suggest visiting your doctor for advice.
If you are still within 5 days of the unprotected sex, then there is emergency contraception you can use (either the EllaOne Pill, or have a coil/IUD fitted).
