I got on depo for the first time, and I have not had bleeding or spotted, about 20 days after my shot I had unprotected sex, (he pulled out) is there any chance I am pregnant ? I am also late on my period but I thought it was because I am just starting my shot.
You don't have periods on Depo Provera. It works by convincing your body that it's pregnant, so that you do not become fertile.
Any bleeding you get on Depo Provera, is usually just until your body gets used to it (2-3 shots), so you may still get some while it settles down, but not necessarily.
If you didn't have sex for 20 days after getting your shot, & there's no chance that you could have become pregnant before getting your first shot, then you will not be pregnant.
You may get pregnancy symptoms, because Depo Provera mimics pregnancy.
