chances of pregnancy?

My bf and i regularly have unprotected sex, and he always finished inside me. i’m on the depo shot, but we are serious and have been talking about starting a family. what are the chances of me getting pregnant even though i’m on the shot? 

Update:

lol yes i am aware depo = protection but i intended to mean no condom (for clarification)

    I assume by "unprotected" you mean without a condom.  Coming inside is a normal part of love making and the point of using something like Depo is that you can do that.  Depo is very reliable but not perfect- nothing is.  You have a less than 1% chance per year of getting pregnant.

    You can get pregnant

    Basically zero.  You aren't having unprotected sex if you have protection from the Depo shot, right?  The shot, like other forms of hormonal contraception, is 99% effective as long as you keep up the shots as scheduled.  Hormonal contraceptives prevent a woman from ovulating.  No ovulation means no fertilization.

    If and when you and your boyfriend are clean or your ability and desire to raise a child, feel free to talk to your ob/gyn about going off the shot and starting using a condom until it is safe to try for a baby.  It can happen within 3 months of going off the shots or take a year or two to conceive after stoping use of this type of birth control.

    How is sex unprotected when on birth control?

    Birth control prevents pregnancy.

    You're not going to get pregnant while on birth control.

    Virtually zero on DEPO.  DEPO + condoms is only marginally more effective than DEPO alone.

    Almost NO chance.

    Any female in her reproductive years can become pregnant. And how do we know what your chances of pregnancy would be?

    Your chances are right around zero until the shot wears off and you start ovulating again.
