Hi I have question, I had unprotected sex 3 days ago and now I took plan B and at the same time first shot of depo given by my nurse today. The question is Can I get pregnant?

Hi, @sunandmoon1 - welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, and I apologize for the delay in responding. I'm not a medical professional, so don't have an answer for you. However, you may want to check out these links on the shot:

- From Mayo Clinic, https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/depo-provera/about/pac-20392204

- From the NIH, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMHT0011058/?report=details

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?
