Hi I had unprotected sex this morning right before I got my first depo shot, and he told me he went off in me. Since I got the shot today do I still have the chance of getting pregnant?? I just had a miscarriage two weeks ago I can't get pregnant again right now.
Yes, there is still a possibility of pregnancy. You are not protected right away unless you get the shot on Day 1 to Day 5 of your period otherwise it takes a week before protection kicks in. More than likely you will be fine. Chances are greater for not getting pregnant than for getting pregnant. Just be sure to use back up protection, like condoms and spermicide until 7 days after your shot. Did you tell them you just had unprotected sex the day before your shot when you got it?
