Average: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) provides 90 days of protection from pregnancy. After this time elapses, your chances of pregnancy will be the same as for any other fertile woman, and a prior abortion typically does not affect pregnancy chances. One episode of unprotected sex during a fertile time in your cycle on average comes with an 8% chance of pregnancy. To avoid pregnancy, use another method of protection. ...Read more
