I've been on the birth control shot for the past six months. The end of this week (Aug. 5) marks three months since I got my last shot, meaning I am due for a renewal. However I decided to not get the shot again. I was wondering if it was safe to have unprotected sex this weekend? I've heard stories that it takes a couple weeks, sometimes months to gain fertility again.
You cannot count on it to protect you past your renewal date. Some women return to fertility right away and some take longer, the thing is you just dont know. You might as well think of it as having unprotected sex because it is, you just cant count on it to protect you past the due date. I would advise that you use some kind of protection like condoms and spermicide.
