Will birth contol shot prevent pregnancy? Affect pregnancy?

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex 2 days before I received my birth control shot. I had been getting them for a while then I missed a shot. I had my period for 3 weeks because I missed one, then it ended for a day we had sex then the following day I went and got my shot. Can I be pregnant? Will it end the pregnancy? Will it effect the pregnancy?

The shot does not end a pregnancy, and it does not affect a baby. Take a pregnancy test 21 and 28 days after the sex to make sure.

m on the depo provera and three days after my injection i went to the doctor and got medication for sinus and flu. one of the medication is an antibiotic called amoxicillian trihydrate. I was wondering if the antibiotic would affect my birth control?? I also had sex with out a condom a week and 2 days after finishing my meds... Could i be pregnant??
