    So my g/f just got the shot yesterday and I we were both wondering how long it takes to start working. We really want to do it this weekend but we don't know if it has set in yet.

    Use
    The first shot of Depo Provera is usually given during or a few days after the start of a menstrual period. After 24 hours, the shot is effective birth control for the next 13 weeks. Many women find it useful to schedule their next shot slightly earlier than necessary; if something prevents them from making their appointment, there will be a window of opportunity to receive their next shot.

    should probably check with the doc just to make sure ;)
