I'm hoping that @meowrightmeow @ainsleigh @lisa3183 @lmkeller @manduwok @marvelousme5, who have mentioned these birth control methods, may have some insights to share on the unprotected sex, then Plan B and first shot of medroxyprogesterone (Depo-Provera) and the question of potential pregnancy. @gailb may also have some thoughts.
Wondering what your doctor may have said about your pregnancy potential when you were in for the medroxyprogesterone (Depo-Provera) shot and Plan B?
