I had sex after I got the depo provea shot. I got my period so I wasn't so worried. Can I still become pregnant even if I had a period on the shot?
'Breakthrough bleeding' is quite common when on Depo. I used to get it after having sex.
If you start getting it without sex (I did), then you can ask for your next couple of Depo shots to be given a couple of weeks earlier, & then return to getting it when you normally would. That normally stops any bleeding whatsoever.

I was supposed to get my depo shot on 2/28/17 but I didn't. I had intercourse around the first week?
