No birth control is 100% especially if you are missing doses. There is s good chance you could be pregnant. Go back for a blood test to tell you for sure

There is a possibility that you can be pregnant and the pregnancy may just be too early for the test to pick up. Wait until you have the next pregnancy test to confirm if you are or no.
I don't speak of this from experience but I have known a couple of women who got pregnant on the shot of course for being late.

If you waited 3 weeks to go back for your next shot your not covered by birth control for those 3 weeks. Your body is out of wack after coming off of birth control and you won't know if you ovulate. You sometimes won't even spot after coming off. Since you had unprotected sex during that 3 weeks you could very well be pregnant. Don't get that next shot until they confirm it for sure. Good luck.

I took one that was not pos or neg. so when went to get my shot they tested me it was a neg but they did tell I need to come back in a few weeks to take another test bc of the dates that did have sex she told me it takes 3 to conceive and that Iay not have built up the right amount of Hgc to show if I am so she told me to wait and come back.

I got pregnant on the depo shot and they tested me before my next one and it was negative ad a week later I tested positive. They told me that it would probably cause low birth weight but my son was born a healthy 8lbs 6oz.
