Thanks for posting your query.

Depo shot provides 99% safety against pregnancy. So you need not worry.

However to my patients I also suggest them to do a urine pregnancy test with pregnancy kit available at pharmacy after 25-30 days in such cases.

Absent period and break through bleeding are common side effects of depo shot.

I hope your query has been answered. I shall be available for your further queries.
