In brief: No.

I'm not aware of this.
Both methods aim to inhibit ovulation. If you get Depo Provera every 12 weeks (3 months) and you also took Ella (ulipristal acetate) within 120hrs of unprotected sex, your chances of pregnancy is very very slim. If a healthcare provider told you this, i would clarify with them and ask for some literature that supports the claim. Take care!
