The only time a woman can get pregnant is when she ovulates. The egg can be fertilised for about 36 hours. However sperm has been known to live in the vaginal tract/womb/fallopian tubes for up to 5 days, so while a woman can only get pregnant when she ovulates ie when an egg is available for the sperm to fertilise, the length of time that sperm can live for must also be considered when timing intercourse.

If your on the depo shot can you get pregnant if your partner doesnt come inside you?

No method of birth control is a 100% guarantee, and this includes both the depo shot and pulling out. Although the chance may be small, there is still a chance that you can get pregnant If your partner pulls out, there is a chance that his pre-ejaculate, which he may not be aware he is producing, may contain sperm cells that could possibly impregnate you. But the biggest concern is whether or not you are ovulating. If you aren't ovulating, then it is impossible for you to get pregnant. However, there is a chance (small, but a chance nonetheless) that you are ovulating, despite the depo shot, and you may be unaware. So, here you have two methods of birth control, pulling out and the depo shot. Using them both will greatly reduce your chances of getting pregnant, but be aware that there is always a chance of getting pregnant, however small. The more methods of birth control you use, such as a condom, a diaphragm, or spermicidal foam, the fewer your chances of getting pregnant.
