Brief Answer:
It is effective after abortion.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Depo shot remains effective even after abortion. The efficacy can decrease due to irregular timing of ovulation. But you should be regular in taking the shot. The action cant be reversed once the shot is given. You can start with oral pills in addition to it for the contraceptive action.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
