Possible to be Pregnant?

Okay so I really messed up. I got my last Depo shot in May and I forgot to schedule my next depo appointment thinking I would eventually get to it. Problem is that at the time I had a ton of things going on between college, getting married, visiting family, and other personal things that I forgot to schedule it. I called today to schedule my depo shot but they told me that I missed what was supposed to be my next shot so we have to start over again and I'll be going to get it this week. I thought I had more time but my husband and I have had unprotected sex 3 times last week. I think I missed shot by about a week.

Is it possible to be pregnant so soon after missing it? I have been on it for about a year now. I know it is my fault so please no need to remind me of how stupid I was.

It is, and it's also possible to get pregnant on the depo..especially if you're having unprotected sex.

Yes you could be. You had sex without any kind of bc in place.

Right! Birth control isn't 100% protective!

Op-
If you don't want another baby, have DH wear a rubber, or a vasectomy ..or don't have sex, lol.

Of course it is possible! It is also possible to get pregnant while on BC.

Oh boy, don't even get me started on BC not being 100% effective lol I ended up becoming pregnant with an IUD. I mean, eventually we wanted another baby, but not that soon.

You could be.
But, you might not be.
I know many woman who want to get pg after Depo, only to find out that it sometimes takes forever to get out of your system.
Of course ANY time you have sex, barring hysterectomy, there is a chance you could get pregnant.
Be safe for the next week.
Take a pregnancy test the morning before your shot, most likey you're ok
