In brief: Probably not

The 3-month interval for depo-provera is calculated to protect even the fastest metabolizers.
The longer you go past this time, the greater the chance of becoming pregnant, but it is not an instant deadline. If you wait a month or more, your doctor may want to wait an interval while you use protection and then get a pregnancy test before giving you your next shot.
