after taking birth controll for 4 years..

Will i be able to get pregnant. when i was 14 i was raped by my boyfriend and 3 months later i realized i was pregnant, well when i was about 5 - 6 months he decides he dont wanna be with me anymore and cheats on me, i stqayed with him cos i was scared and i never told my mom. i ended up telling her i was pregnant and when she said something to him he got pissed off and when we were alone he beat me like a man. I had to goto the hospital and have some DNC? thingy. i heard that having that can cause you to not be able to have kids later in life, same with a abortion. cos they have to open it more and if they mess up then.... but i took birth controll patches from when i was 15 - 16, then i used the shot for 9 months, then used nothing for 6, now i just used the patches again to regulate my period ive been taking them for 3 - 4 months now, this month i didn't put them on. is it true that birth controll and all that can make you.

  • From your little timeline you gave, you seem very young still, correct?

    B/C will not make you infertile. If you take the Depo shot, it can take a year or more before it's all out of your system. A D&C can cause some fertility problems but that likelihood is small. If you are concerned about your fertility, then go see a doctor. If you are planning on TTC, then you should have a pre-TTC checkup anyways.

  • I don't know about DNC's, but I had an abortion when I was 18 and never had problems getting pregnant to start a family. I was always on the pill for birth control and nothing else and to my knowledge it doesn't make you infertile.

  • Thats a lot to go through. I am very sorry for what happened to you. I think you will be fine. I took BC pills on and off starting at age 18 and when we wanted a baby, I just stopped, then I got on them after baby. I did that 3 times and after baby no 4, I havent been on anything. Hubby did it..LOL....Really, I think your body is fine.
