hi, i was on da shot for about 1-2yrs, i stoped taking it since 2008 so now i want to have a baby, but now am worried will i ever have another baby?

If you were on DepoProvera,

If you were on DepoProvera, it could be some time before your periods return to normal (up to 12 months). However, for most women return of fertility takes less than one year. If your last shot was over a year ago, and you are not using any other hormonal method, then your normal cycle and fertility should have returned by now.

If you have been trying for a baby without any luck, then there is probably another reason for your difficulty. Many things can cause impaired fertility, including stress, poor diet, STDs, previous infection, prior pregnancy, or prior abortions. You should consult with a fertility specialist for an examination to determine what else might be the cause of the problem.

Best of luck,
