….and he did not pull out. Is there any chance I can be pregnant? I heard that after a week the Depo is in full effect and you are protected against pregnancy?
Once someone has had a hormonal form of birth control (like the Depo shot) for 1 week it can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina). It takes a full week for the hormones to be integrated into the body and start working.
In order for the Depo Shot to be effective, a person needs to get the shot every 3 months.
So if the sexual contact happened after that first initial week, you would’ve been protected up to 99%.
