Okay I just got my Depo Shot four days from now …..

…And he came in me. We got Plan B and I wanted to know am I safe? And can plan b affect my Depo Shot?

It is important to say that pregnancy is possible whenever sperm comes into contact with the vagina.

When someone starts a new hormonal method of birth control (like the Depo shot), they need to use a back up method (like condoms or practicing abstinence) for one week before that method will be effective.

After that first week, the hormones will be integrated into the body and can help prevent pregnancy up to 99%(even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina) when taken correctly. In order for the Depo Shot to be effective, a person needs to get the shot every 3 months.

Emergency Contraception can help reduce the risk of pregnancy. Emergency Contraception works by delaying ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – if ovulation has not already occurred. Emergency contraception can be taken up to five days after the most recent sexual contact and is more effective the sooner it is taken.  Emergency Contraception will not make the Depo Shot less effective.

The only way someone can know if they are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after their most recent sexual contact. If you want to make an appointment at Teen Clinic you can call us at 303-442-5160
