Hi I had the depo shot without being on my period on Tuesday (21 February 17) and i had sex on the the Friday (24 February 17) and my boyfriend had ejaculated inside of me could I be pregnant ??
Well, I mean it's possible... But not likely. Don't worry too much. The shot should be doing its thing by now. You should use condoms for about a week to be safe and it sounds like you either did that or abstained so you should be fine. It's never 100%. There's no birth control method that is. None. But it's pretty effective. If it failed a lot don't you think it wouldn't be prescribed the same way and you'd get a lot more warnings? It does work and depo is one of the best methods. If you have reason to believe you may be pregnant in a few weeks that's one thing but if not then try not to stress.
The real question is why you're so worried. Do you tend to have a lot of stress? Do you find yourself worrying a lot? Do you have trouble sleeping because things are on your mind? If you answered yes to those questions you may have anxiety. That's not that big a deal. There are plenty of ways to help with that. If this is just a one-time thing though I would just say you should just calm down for now and live your life. It's not likely you're pregnant. It's really not. Don't let yourself worry too much about things you shouldn't worry a lot about, okay? That doesn't do anyone any good.
