  1. I missed my last depo injection on April 3, 2015. I have had sex everyday but I have also been bleeding since my first injection January 8, 2015. Could I be pregnant?

    • Bleeding is a common side effect of Depo, especially after the first shot. Between January and the day your shot was due you were protected from pregnancy. However, if you have had unprotected sex (sex without a condom) after April 3rd you are not longer protected from pregnancy by your depo shot, meaning you may be at risk for a pregnancy. If you have had unprotected sex after April 3rd, it is advised you take a pregnancy test and follow up with your second depo shot.
