I am 19 yrs old and i was on the depo shot for 4 yrs and i stopped taking it about 9 months ago and changed to the pill but about 3 months after i started it my fiance and i decided to start trying to have a baby.We have been trying to get pregnant for about 7 months now and i still haven't concieved. I've heard that if you take the depo shot for more then 2 yrs it can ruin your chances of concieving..is that true or just a myth?? I was really excited when we first started trying but now I'm scared that I may have ruined all my eggs from being on the shot for too long. I got pregnant once before while on the shot but I never even knew it till I had a miscairrage.And for the last 2 months I have been having 3 periods each month and i have no idea how that can happen. And now almost every one of my friends from when i was in high school are either pregnant or have baby's of their own I'm really starting to think that there is something wrong with my body and that scares me more then anything in the world, my fiance is very reassuring and insists that there is nothing wrong but I can't help but thinking the worst. I have seached the web over and been on every pregnancy site there is and I can't find any answers. What should I do???View Thread
