I had sex 3 days before I started getting my depo shot again after 6 months of not getting the shot, could I still get pregnant? I got the shot 2 weeks before I would've started my period
So you weren't protected by anything when you had sex? Then yes, of course you could get pregnant. In fact, given the info you've given, you were probably around your most fertile time of the cycle!
I'd strongly suggest getting a pregnancy test done, because there are very mixed views in the medical profession, regarding whether or not Depo Provera can cause harm to a baby if given the drug when pregnant.
If you get a positive result, then you must also get a blood test done for pregnancy to be sure that is the case, because Depo can give a false positive result.
