Hi!
Yes.  If you were my patient, I would tell you that the depo shot works very well, but it is possible to get pregnant, especially for ladies who are overweight, and also if it is not taken correctly(the shot is not given in time) or it the pregnancy occurs too soon after the depo shot.
Short story long,   and sometimes it is just bad luck!
Hope this helps!
