I'm on the Depo-Provera shot and I should get the shot again in 2 weeks. I had unprotected sex and my partner chummed inside me.. Could i get pregnant?

Unlikely: If you had a full dose of depo-provera (150 mg), you should be protected from pregnancy for up to 14 weeks. If your next shot is in 2 weeks, you're cool. However, it does not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases (stds). So make sure you know your partner well or use a condom to protect yourself from infections. The depo shot will protect you from pregnancy. Take care. ...Read more
