could i get pregnant while on the depo and an antibiotic?

Hello. I am due for my 4th shot this month on the 23rd. I have not been spotting at all while on the shot. I was on an antibiotic for 5 days. my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex a week and 2 days ago which was when i was on the medicine. 2 days ago i starting spotting a brownish white color but it only shows up when i wipe and is also light colored. Is there a possibility i could be pregnant?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would reassure you that taking antibiotics should not change the effectiveness of your depo.  A pregnancy test never hurts, and I usually recommend doing one any time there is a question, but yoiu are probably OK.
Good luck!
