Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community! 

Since Norifam is used to prevent pregnancy, your chances of becoming pregnant are very low. However, like with most birth controls, there is never a 100% chance that you will not be pregnant.

Typically, Norifam is injected the first day of your period, then lasts for the rest of the month until your next period. Since your doctor injected Norifam so close to the start of your period, I would say you are safe. Your chances of pregnancy will be much lower. However, if you are still worried about pregnancy, maybe use a back up birth control like a condom.

I hope this has helped!
