Hello, the answer is no, but you should know the following:

What is the most important information I should know about Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

PREGNANCY: Medroxyprogesterone inhibits fertility at high doses. It should not be given during pregnancy.

FUTURE FERTILITY

However, women who want to become pregnant may stop using Depo Provera at any time. For some women, fertility returns immediately. For others, it may take 6-18 months or longer for the body's hormone cycle to go back to normal.

You might want to discuss this further important information with your Gynecologist.

My very best wishes!
