The depo shot is very effective when taken alone. If you are also taking spermicide, although nothing but abstinence is 100%, I think you are pretty close, provided that the spermicide is also taken as instructed. i.e., 15 minutes before intercourse but not longer than one hour, unless it's VCF (vaginal contraceptive film) which must be taken at least 25 minutes prior to intercourse and can last as long as 3 hours. Good for you for being so conscientious.

It would not be an effective spermicide. However, it would probably be an interesting lubricant.

No, and Coke is not an effective spermicide...

I am not positive but I have read somewhere (If I am not mistaken) that they are about 95% effective.

Spermicide is up to 70% effective, much more so with a condom.
