Hello, I have recently given birth on July 10 before being discharged I took the depo shot on July 12 me and my spouse start having sex earlier than 6 weeks could I be pregnant? And how often do u get the shot? Because it's October now
You were covered against pregnancy immediately. If you want to have continuous coverage, then you should aim to get your shots at 12 week intervals, as this allows you another week, just in case.
You got your shot on 12th July, so 12 weeks after that is today, 4th Oct.
You have until next Wednesday, 11th October, which will be 13 weeks. I wouldn't leave it that long, if you can get it done sooner.
If you get it done outside of the 13 weeks, then you will need to use condoms or other barrier methods of contraception, for 7 days from getting the shot.
