Will birth control shot help to prevent pregnancy?

My girlfriend and i just had unprotected sex yesterday and 3 times last week and a few times the week before. She takes a pregnancy test tomorrow for a birth control shot. Will this prevent pregnancy still? or is she still at risk for having a child?

Hi, I think she is still at a risk of pregnancy because the shot will prevent future pregnancy not the previous ones. If pregnancy test is negative, no need to worry. if positive, consult a doctor for termination if you don't want pregnancy.
