do you think its risky?

so i just quit taking my depo shot a few months ago and i think i'm getting my period back...i've got some brownish blood spotting. I'm just wondering "IF" i were to get pregnant would it be risky? Could it be a higher risk having a miscarriage since i've just come off the depo a few months ago? I've had a miscarriage and i don't want to go through that again.

  • If you are beyond the point when you would have gotten the next shot already, I think you'd be fine.

  • You may be at more risk. Here is what the Contraceptive Information Resource says

    "Miscarriage and infant mortality are increased for children whose mothers were taking Depo-Provera when they became pregnant."

    It doesn't say when your risk of miscarriage returns to normal.
