As long as you've both been checked for STDs & you know both of you don't have any other sexual partners, then it is safe to have intercourse on Depo Provera, without other contraception.
It worked fine for 18 years for me (with the recommended breaks in between).
If you got it on your first 5 days of your period then you were covered against pregnancy immediately. Otherwise, you needed to wait 7 days.
As long as you get future shots on time, you do not need to wait or use extra precautions in between shots.
