Am I safe if my bf ejaculate in me 24 hours after my shot??
Definitely not safe! You are not covered until 7 days after the first shot, because you were not on the first 5 days of your period when you got the Shot.
You need to use emergency contraception as soon as possible, if you do not want to conceive. There are mixed medical opinions as to whether Depo Provera can harm a pregnancy or unborn baby.
As you were close to the time you are likely to have been most fertile, I'd suggest using the emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (also known as Ella). This is because, if you are fertile, the other pill, Plan B (Levonorgestrel) may be no use if you are fertile. It works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body (which can be up to a week later), but cannot do that if you're already ovulating, which is possible, given the dates you've given. Def go for the Ulipristal Acetate/Ella, in my opinion.
