I have never had the depo shot but im sure the risks are pretty close to the same as any other birth control. if you did get pregnant with in those few days, i dont think it would stick and it would pass like a normal period. some birth controls, if taken while pregnant, can cause mental issues, and sometimes physical issues. i would wait a few weeks and see if anything happens, if you start to show signs i would go to the doctor and see what they can do

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Neither it hurts the baby nor it causes side effects like back pain etc. All that you need is reassurance.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
