... end of my last period but a day before I was suppose to ovulate and I only want to wait 5 days. Can that much really change in 48 hrs?
You aren't covered until 7 days later, due to the time in your cycle when you got the shot. They don't just pick a random amount of days & tell you to wait. It really can be the difference between a baby or not. Also, if you were to become pregnant with Depo in your system, it could cause harm to the baby.
For the sake of 2 days, verses the potential outcome, I'd choose the 2 days.
