Haven't had my period or any bleeding on the Depo-Provera shot and I had the 3rd dose of it. Can I still get pregnant?

Unlikely. All contraceptives have some failure rate, so we can't promise you anything, but depo's failure rate is around 0.3%, which makes pregnancy while on it super-unlikely. The fact that you haven't had any bleeding while on it implies that you likely aren't ovulating, either, making your chances pretty small.
Birth Control Works. If you are taking your shots on a timely manner and are not having menstrual periods it is very unlikely that you can become pregnant.

I got my first Depo-Provera shot on the same day my period was due I still have not gotten my period or any bleeding I am 13 days late now could I be pregnant?

No. Typically most offices will administer a pregnancy test before giving a woman the depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. It's possible that if you had sex a few days before you got the shot that you are pregnant. If worried, then consider a home pregnancy test, just to be sure. Normal for the shot to cause absence of periods entirely, though, that's a known side effect of the medication. Read more...

Please . Please take a pregnancy test to be sure, although it may be that your hormones are just out-of-balance temporarily. If it is negative, but you are still concerned, see your provider and have a blood pregnancy test which is more accurate. If you have pain, light-headedness, or heavier bleeding then you must be seen as an emergency. Read more...

Not likely. Depo-provera is one of the most effective forms of birth control, as long as you get the shot every 3 months as directed. Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect.
