What are the chances I'm Pregnant?

I received my first Depo-Provera shot on May 31 and had unprotected sex on June 7th. It was not within the 5 days of the start of my last period. My boyfriend pulled out so I know that if any cum actually got inside me, it wasn't much. I'm really nervous about the chances of me being pregnant. June 7th would've been 8 days since I got the shot counting the day I actually got the shot, was I protected?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I presume you are ''almost'' protected.The recommendation is not to have sex for first seven days after the shot,if taken other part of the cycle.You had the exposure on the 7 th day.So,you can understand ,there always exist a minimal chance.I suggest you to do a pregnancy testing after three weeks of exposure.If it is negative,you are protected.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
