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?
Your chance of pregnancy on the depo is 0.3%. You do not ovulate with it, you can't get pregnant.
'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.
