Can birth control injection harm unborn

Hi Doc

I just want to find out from you whether it is possible for the birth control injection to harm an unborn baby. I had the injection about a week ago and were sexually active a couple of days later ( during unsafe period ). just want to find out what the effects of the contraception will be in case of conception.

The injectable will not harm the baby. It does not affect growth.

Best wishes
