You ovulate 14 days before your period, so yes, you can get pregnant before you have a period. You can test as early as 14 days after sex with an early detection pregnancy test using first morning urine.

Hi I see your on depo and I have a question I got the same shot 3 months ago and I know this is personal but do you bleed after sex? Because I do but I never did before I got this shot I was wondering I I'm the only one who is experiencing this?

Depo causes changes to your cervix (because it changes your hormone levels) and that can cause some bleeding during/after intercourse because the cervix is more sensitive.

I had been on the depo shot since January 2010 until March 2011. My doc told me it takes at least 2 months for it to officially wear off completely. My suggestion would be to take a home test and if you still aren't sure to take a blood test. I am trying to have another child and am still waiting for my position test.
