A week ago, I got my Depo-Privera shot. Is it safe for my boyfriend to ejaculate inside me multiple times in one day with this shot? Will I get pregnant? Will the shot protect me from getting pregnant if I have sex multiple times in one day?

Yup! The birth control shot protects you against pregnancy 24/7, no matter how many times you have sex. But it’s important to make sure you always get your shots on time.

Each shot of Depo-Provera protects you from pregnancy for 12-13 weeks (3 months). So you’ll need to get your shot every 12-13 weeks to stay protected. 

If you’re 2 or more weeks late getting your shot, your nurse or doctor may ask you to take a pregnancy test before getting another shot. They may also tell you to use emergency contraception if you had penis-in-vagina sex in the past 120 hours (5 days).
