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.

Spermicide is most effective when used with a barrier method of birth control, like male and female condoms, cervical cap or diaphragm - used correctly spermicide with a condom or other barrier is between 90% and 95% effective. When used alone, spermicide jelly, foam, sheet or suppository needs to be placed high in the vagina, against the cervix and you must add fresh spermicide each time you have vaginal intercourse - it is 70% to 85% effective in preventing pregnancy. Each type of spermicide is used in a slightly different way. Be sure to read the instructions that are included in the box.
