I got my first depo shot on the 17 of july. I got the shot 9 days after my period. 2 weeks later on the 31 of july i had unportected sex with my boyfriend and he ejeculated inside of me multiple times. Could i possibly still get pregnant? I heard from different people that it takes 7 days or even a whole month for the shot to actually start working so im not sure if i was protected or not. Please help!!
If you get your first shot during the first 5 days of your period, you are protected immediately. Otherwise, the Manufacturer advises that you use extra protection for 7 days.
You can see that on the leaflet that comes with the shot, for prescribers, or view the sheet on the Manufacturer's website.
