i just got on the computer today and i read a question about the depo shot. i was on it about 3- 3 1/2 years ago and got off cuz it made me gain lots of weight i took two cycles of it. Anyways is it really true that it can make some women sterile? i took it when my son was 6months and now this month he will be 5 and i havent had another one and me and my SO have been tryin for a year and then we said we will let it happen when it happens cuz we thought we were trying so hard (sorry TMI) I thought that i had a misscarriage cuz i had all the signs and i asked opinions and they said it was. Well anyways do you really think that it effects people in that way?Answer Question

No. They have been used safely for decades by millions of women worldwide. Depo is a long-term method of birth control and it may delay a woman’s ability to become pregnant after it is stopped (on average 9 months). Depo and birth control pills do not make women sterile or unable to get pregnant. Source: http://www.nhcgov.com/AgnAndDpt/HLTH/Pages/FAQs-WHC.aspx
I hope the above helps. It said no, but it also said that depo can prevent pregnancy: 9 months average. average means that some woman can be shorter but OTHERS LONGER.
