It is definitely safer to switch from the Birth Control to the shot, as you have protection throughout. If a woman on the birth control pill gets a Depo Provera injection, she will have immediate protection against pregnancy. If a woman not on birth control pills gets a Depo Provera injection, she may have a delay in protection, depending on where she was in her menstrual cycle.
