Sex after contraceptive injection - pls

hi, my gf has been on the injection for nearly 6 years. she just come off it and we had unprotected sex directly after her mentruation cycle. She said there were no reason to worry as she cant get pregnant for up to 12 months after leaving the injection becuase she has been on it for the full 6 years.

Whats the possibility that she can fall pregnant directly after her menstruation cycle and leaving the injection.

Whilst it may take a while for hormones to settle down and periods to begin again after the contraceptive injection, it is possible to fall pregnant after the date that the next injection would have been due. Some women may find that it takes a while to fall pregnant, but if you are not ready for this yet, use another contraceptive.
