i had my 6 week ago via c-section. i do not breastfeed. and yesterday i had my 6 week check up. and my first depo-provera injection. will that provide immediate protection from pregnancy. me and my husband does not want anymore kids for the next 2-3 years.
If you got the shot during the first 5 days of your period you are immediately safe. If not then you should use some other form of protection for at least 7 days. It's pretty much like the pill in when it starts to "cover" you.
