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 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.
