Im not gonna go huge into details, but lets just say im having an ISSUE here.

So when does Depo Shot take effect?

I got it 2 weeks later than I should have and I wasnt on my period, and they didnt give me a pregnancy test, they just gave me the shot. Im hearing that its only effective IMMEDIATELY when you get it on your period. As far as when your not, time ranges from 1 day - 30 days. 30 days doesnt sound right, but I did PERHAPS DTD 24-48 hours after the shot... OOPSSS!!

Can someone PLEASE tell me the real time-frame when its effective when your NOT on your period?

I have no idea. I always got my shot on period or not. I can tell you I was on it for 2 years and it was horrible.

If you get the birth control shot within the first seven days after the start of your period, you are protected from pregnancy immediately. If you get the shot within five days after miscarriage or an abortion, or within three weeks after giving birth, you are protected from pregnancy immediately. Otherwise, you need to use some form of backup birth control — like a condom, female condom, diaphragm, sponge, or emergency contraception (morning after pill) — for the first week after getting the shot.
