My last period ended September 25 & I got my first depo shot October 8. My boyfriend came in me last night (October 11) and now I'm freaking out. I know I was supposed to use a condom for the first seven days but we didn't so I don't know what to do now. Am I just overreacting? Or should I take the morning after pill? When does the depo shot start to really work?
You are supposed to wait 7 days because that is how long until its safe. Once again someone is over anxious because you didn't follow directions. I'm not going to tell you you're protected so do what you feel you have to.
You are not covered by the Depo so could become pregnant.
