This just came to me the other day. I have 4 children and I am currently waiting to miscarry for my third time. My husband and I just can't wrap.our minds around it. Until...lightbulb!.. all my miscarriages occurred after stopping the depo and having two semi normal cycles!! I mentioned this to an OB in my office who says its unrelated? I think not! First miscarriage was 4 months after stopping depo and having two semi normal cycles.. second miscarriage was 15 months after stopping depo and having 2 semi normal cycles.. now this ! Stopped the depo in august and had two semi normal cycles , now miscarried.. I will never , ever touch the depo again!

I can totally agree. I have yet to get pregnant but I realized I had no Af while on the depo and I have done everything right to get a baby and still nothing. I googled. It says of taken may permanently prevent pregnancy. My on said the same thing when I told him. I hate that thing and will never get it again

I won't ever do hormonal bc again. I don't think it is to blame since everyone reacts differently to it. I know many people who were on it and conceived with no problem.

How long have you been TTC?… I had never had trouble getting pregnant until stopping my second round if depo . I had a year if periods that were twice a month. It was ridiculous!

And its not really getting pregnant after the depo that is the problem for me. Its having a healthy pregnancy after that is the problem

I am sure it is. Bc is a bitch, period. Unfortunately, they do not tell you what the effects might be later down the road.

Of course not, then they lose money and so do the drug companies :/

We havnt used protection since I stopped the depo, which has been 4 yrs. But we started the timing and whatnot, 2 and a half to 3 yrs ago

So do yal think the depo plays a part in becoming pregnant once you stop taking it? I was on depo for almost a year and haven't had it now for almost 2 and we have been trying snce then to become pregnant. We both have children by our first marriage but can't seem to have one of our own.
