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. Read more...

I recently stopped the Depo-Provera shot (oct 25) I received my period nov 12th regular heavy flow. I had unprotected sex nov 15 can I get pregnant?

Chance is low but. A healthy woman in her reproductive year can become pregnant at any time during her cycle, though the chance is greatest during/around time of ovulation and less so during active menstrual flow. It is difficult to know exactly when you ovulate, hence the chance of pregnancy any time. If you don't want pregnancy yet, use protection at all time--pills and/or condoms. Consult doc. Good luck.

Depo shot. If you received the shot (150mcg) at the right time in your cycel - ie just as your period was starting - it should have protected you. That is the nice thing with the shot - its protective once its dosed. However, if you got the shot at any other time it might not work until your next cycle. The best thing to do is check a pregnancy test. Read more...
