I’ve been on the depo shot for over a year and a half and I haven’t gotten my period ever since I got my first shot. Does that mean I don’t ovulate anymore? My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. Is there a chance to be pregnant since I’ve been on the shot for so long and haven’t gotten my period in forever?
The shot does work by preventing ovulation. Without ovulation, there's a slim chance of pregnancy. That being said, there have been women who got pregnant even while on the shot. If you're not interested in having a baby right now, you might consider a backup method.
