Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have taken the Depo shot on time, then you should continue to have protection against pregnancy. If you are worried about pregnancy, using two methods will give you better protection. Consider using back-up contraceptive method (condom/spermicide) to have better protection while having intercourse.
Take care.
