Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Given that the depo shot had technically warn off, and you had unprotected intercourse, then the possibility of pregnancy certainly exists. That being said, the depo shot probably lasts a little bit longer than the 12 weeks, and you were likely still protected from pregnancy. So, the chance of pregnancy is very low, but not zero. You need to check a pregnancy now (and if positive you must contact your doctor), and again about 3 weeks after the last episode of unprotected intercourse.

I hope that this helps. If you require greater detail and a rapid response, please click on the link to ask me a question directly!
