It was a long time ago when I used the provera. I can't say that it can cause infertility but I can say that it can cause birth defects in an unborn child. I used it only twice and the second time I didn't know that I was pregnant. I consulted a health care provider who suggested that it would more than likely cause severe birth defects. I was suggested to abort the pregnancy. I lost the baby anyway so not sure if that was part of the reason. I don't know what your taking the depo for but I would definitely talk to my doctor more about the problems it can cause. Not to scare you but to make you more aware and ask your doctor these questions.

I got 2 shots total but I took a break between the 2. I would always go in for my first shot but never the second. After the shot my periods were very irregular. My boyfriend and I tried to get pregnant and had a really hard time. About a year later we finally got pregnant in december 2012, and I had a miscarriage.

I had one depo shot after my youngest child, I was 19. My periods have never been "normal". I still have periods ever couple of months but no pregnancy. It has been 6 years since any form of birth control was used by my husband or I. My doctor says everything is normal. I don't understand how things can be normal and nothing has changed but no more children... the only thing I can think of is that one depo shot did something not so funny :( I do not suggest anyone take this shot.

My Granddaughter has been on Depo shots for a couple of years and now she is in severe pain on morphine for a while. A cyst on her ovarie. They said she has 3 of them ( cyst). I will be so upset if this shot caused it and becomes infertile due to the shots. To think she would never have a family will be awful. I hope not. We are and have always been a very fertile family of women. Never a problem.

After having my second son at the age of 23, fourteen months after my first, I decided Depo might be for me as it was pushed by my Dr.
I am turning 32 next month and I still to this day have not been able to get pregnant and I have irregular periods.
THIS SHOT RUINED A PART OF MY LIFE! I never would have taken it if I knew I would not be able to have more children!
Looking back I wish...
