Anything is possible: But if you are getting the Depo-Provera shots at the correct time you should not get pregnant, I have seen some cases where a person was already pregnant when she got the Depo-Provera shot which should not happen if you get your 1st shot on a menstrual period like you are supposed to and if you have any questions then do blood preg test to make sure u are not preg before you get your 1st shot.

A 34-year-old female asked:

Missed Depo-Provera injection for 7days can I get pregnant?

Probably not: There is usually Atwood week grace period between injections. If you have been getting your injections regularly then then risk of pregnancy is small. You should get your injection as soon as possible.
