Can i be pregnant if i miss my shot yesterday and go get it the next day ?

Unlikely: If you were only one day late on your shot the chances are very slim that you could be pregnant. I would use condoms for backup for the next month to be extra careful. You usually have to be more than 5-7 days late for your shot for that to be an issue. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, it is possible for you to get pregant. This is because the hormones in each injection last about 3 months. Since it has been more than 3 months since your last dose, then it is possible that no birth control hormone is present in your system. While some women note that it takes a while for their mentsral cycle to return to normal, there is still a chance that you can get pregnant. Look for the other early signs of pregnancy such as 1. Nausea/vomiting - morning sickness 2. Spotting/breakthrough bleeding - due to an egg's implantation into the uterus 3. Back pain 4. Breast enlargement and/or tendeness 5. Heachaches - due to hormonal changes 6. Nipple changes (for instance a change in color) 7. Frequent urination the pregnancy hormone can be detected in the urine 14 days after conception. Do take a pregnancy test after that time frame. ...Read more
