Maybe: If you started the pill on the first day of your period, then you are protected. If you started it on a sunday, then you need to use a condom or some other back up method until the pack is finished and you start the next pack.

Possible / unlikely: If you were having monthly cycles before you got the shot, you should not have ovulated by then time you were sexually active. But you may have ovulated by about a week later - giving a remote chance that there would still be viable sperm around to fertilize an egg. You do need to take a pregnancy test. The spotting is likely due to the shot - about 70% of women will have spotting after the shot.

Long time...: That seems like a long time to suffer. You should go to a walk-in clinic or stat-care possible.

Shouldn't be: If incontinence wasn't an immediate problem following your TVH it's hard to make a connection to your surgery, especially since it's a good time to address any prolapse or incontinence with the initial surgery. You most likely have developed pelvic organ prolapse and this may lead to your above symptoms. You should schedule an appt with your gyn for exam, bladder testing, & options. Take care.

Probably nothing: I would, however, repeat the pregnancy test in about a week to make sure that a window period hasn't missed. The brain-ovary-uterus axis is quite sensitive to a lot of things (e.g. Stress, weight changes, diet changes, etc...). Any one of these things, including a pregnancy, can alter the normal cycle.

Depends: During sexual activity there are many points when sperm containing sexual fluids can leak & contaminate fingers or end up at your vaginal opening apart from the main event. If none of this fluid had access to your vagina, you can't get pregnant from sex using an alternative site.
