Okay i was scheduled to get my second shot between Sept 15-29 but didn't have time to go get on the 15th, I had unprotected sex on the 18th, three days later than my schedule can I be pregnant? I had been on my period and off almost threw out the 3 month since I got the shot and I have irregular periods before getting on the shot (would go monthes without having it) and I was on my period on the 18th the day I had unprotected sex but have been on it for more than a week... is there a big chance I'm pregnant
No. That's why you're given a window of time to get your shot.
Getting it at the earliest point is a good idea, as it can also help to stop any irregular bleeding you might get on Depo Provera.
You weren't on an actual period, It's hormonal breakthrough bleeding, which is common on Depo until you've had 2 or 3 shots.
