Depo Provera, Effectiveness and effect of foods

I got my first Depo shot on October 18th which was day 2 of my period that cycle...I had unprotected sex last night and he finished in me twice.

I am also on a regiment of natural supplements made from food without chemicals.

1. Was the Depo provera effective at this point or should I take a plan B?
2. Would the all natural supplements that are made from foods effect the Depo provera and reduce its effectiveness against pregnancy?

Welcome to this forum.
Depo starts acting after 2 weeks of injection. So, if you are within that timeframe, take an I pill or plan B.
Natural supplements do not affect the contraceptive efficacy of this depo. So, don't worry to take it along with depo.

Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
