Can i still have gotten pregnany?
Very unwise! If you get your shot outside the first 5 days of your period, then it is not yet effective at preventing pregnancy.
If you get pregnant whilst on Depo Provera, there is much mixed medical opinion as to what harm it may cause the pregnancy & baby. Not enough studies to rely on.
If you test positive, then you need to have a test done by the doctor, as Depo Provera can give false positive results on urine tests, as the same hormone is present in Depo Provera (albeit artificial) as would be more present in your body if you were pregnant.
