Don't be late!: In all honesty, depo's effects likely last a little bit longer than 3 months by maybe a few days (a week). Your scientists were smart in ensuring a grace period for people who can't get to a clinic for an injection in time. So most likely you're safe, but don't do it again! you only get so lucky so many times. Make sure you get your Depo-Provera asap or consider a more long acting method.
