Hi, i had my first depo shot on May 8, this more than 5 days of my period, I had unprotected sex on May 16. I have some spotting for a week now. Is there a possibility that I could be pregnant? No pregnancy symptoms. But I just want to make sure.
If you did not have your first Depo shot whilst on your first 5 days of your period, then you have to wait 7 days before you're covered. You have done that, so you are protected against pregnancy.
You do not have periods when on Depo.. A period is flushing out the lining of your womb, including an unfertilised egg.
You do not produce an egg when on Depo.
What you are experiencing is break-through hormonal bleeding. This can last until you have your 3rd Depo shot. By then, it usually has stopped all together.
You may get all sorts of hormonal symptoms on Depo, such as bleeding, pregnancy like symptoms (because Depo tricks your body into thinking you're pregnant, to prevent you releasing eggs each month), such as bloating, sort breasts, lower back ache (Depo softens the ligaments in your back, as if preparing it to expand to make room for a growing baby), mood swings etc. Most of these symptoms pass as you get your next couple of shots.
