You need to do: A blood preg test so see your gyn, very uncommon for that to happen unless you were already preg. When u got your 1st shot or were late getting a shot.

Can u get pregnant on the Depo-Provera shot in the shower?

Sure, but unlikely: The Depo-Provera shot is good but is not 100%. If you have sex anywhere, including the shower, you could potentially conceive - but less than 1% chance.

Thats houdl not happ: Happen as u should only get the Depo-Provera shot if you are on your period or if you have been getting them and are late then a pregnancy test must be done first, Depo-Provera most likely would not cause a misc if you did get it while pregnant.

Periods start: Most important would be the resumption of menses, but the period comes after the first ovulation by about 2 weeks so if you are trying to prevent pregnancy you need to protect starting 3 months from the last injection of depot provera (medroxyprogesterone). Assuming Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone).

Hard to know: The shot lasts 3 months from when it was given and then can take up to 6 months to no longer impact the body. One clue is if the periods are back to being regular.
