Hi I've been on and off the deposit shot for yrs... the first time I stayed on it for almost six yrs before I stopped... a yr or so after my period started again then three months after I got pregnant with my son..after him I started the deposit again... it's been 2 yrs now and the side effects of the deposit are really bad on me so I've decided to stop... I was due for my next shot last week Wednesday but I missed it... I had unprotected sex the day before, the day after, and Saturday night..all the time my bf came inside me... I woke up this .morning feeling really sick and even threw up a little... is it possible for me to be pregnant right now??
Can I get pregnant during a week after I missed my depo shot??

It's certainly possible, because you missed your shot's window.
Most people take at least a few months before becoming fertile again, & for some it can take a couple of years.
It's most likely the falling progesterone level, as the Depo Provera leaves your body. You could get hormonal symptoms like this for a few months, until your body rebalances itself.
