Stopped depo. No period. Had unprotected sex. Could I get pregnant?

Hi, I came off the depo shot a month ago and my period has not come back yet. I started having sex with a guy but when we got into having it i stopped him after he went in three times he did not get to cum. My question is when will my period come back and even though he did not cum could I still get pregnant because I am no longer on the shot. Is the shot still in my system even though it has only been a month ago when i came off of it.

Thanks for your query.
After coming off the Depo, it is common to miss your period for upto 3 - 6 months.
You could still get pregnant with the pre ejaculatory fluid, which does contain live sperm.
The effect of the Depo is not reliable now, since you are off it.
You could theoretically fall pregnant.
If you do not have your period within a month, take a pregnancy test to be sure, and use a reliable method of contraception.
All the best.
