I mad a mistake and had unprotected sex with a woman that claimed to be on depo....once. She now is claiming to be pregnant but is still saying she was on depo. From the date she said she got the shot and we had sex was 11 weeks 2 days. I realize that is on the outside edge of the effective range but is it still in the 99% category at that point? I honestly doesn’t even know for sure if she REALLY is pregnant...she is just saying she is. But I want to possibly put myself at ease if my chances of getting this person pregnant are still in the 0.3% chance range.

Well for all she knows it could just be the shot I myself am on it and having some trouble figuring out if I am prego or if it is just the shot. Really the only way to find out for sure is if she gets a test done. Also not trying to sound rude or mean but you can still get pergo when your on birth control. I have also herd that for most women it is very hard to get prego. I don't know what else to tell you other than have her take a test.
