In brief: Unlikely

The pregnancy rate on depo is very low-less than one per first year of use.
If you received your shot within the week you had your period, the chance of pregnancy is extremely low. If you received your depo shot more than a week after your period, there is a chance of pregnancy even if you had a negative pregnancy test before your shot.

In brief: No, but...

No, a woman "cannot" get pregnant while on the depo shot during her period, but life can surprise you on rare occasions.
