Although not impossible, it is very unlikely that you will be pregnant. It takes a long long time for the depo shot to get out of your system. It is not good on day 90 and bad on day 91.

It will not harm a baby,

If you have any reason to think you are pregnant, take another pregnancy test. Do not expect to see a positive result.

Take care!
