Hi, I am 25, and a mom of three, one is my husbands son for his first marriage, and two are ours together. I had them when I was 19, and 21. I miscarried just last year in july and it broke my heart. We have been ttc (trying to concieve) since, and it hasn't worked. I am getting to were I think there may be a problem. :(
I directly attribute my miscarriage to use of the contraceptive depo provera, the shot. My sister in law miscarried four babies due to side effects from this shot. She had to have fertility treatments to become pregnant with her last child. I was off the depo for a little under a year when I became pregnant. But I hadn't had a regular cycle of periods, and I still haven't. :shock:
looking for advise.
I dont know if this is good advise but I was on the depo shot for 2 years. Before the depo shot I had 2 kids and now that I have been off it for about 5-6 years, I havent had any children. I have been trying for that 5-6 years. My doctor told me that it shouldnt have any thing to do with the depo. :roll: its kind of funny how you can have kids with no problem until you go on that shot for a while :x but then again I have cysts on my ovarys. One is really small, the doctor isnt worryed about that one, but the other was or is very big. He said depending on the cyst I have on my ovary thay may be why im not getting pregnant.
I am pregnant again. But the drs told me thursday to prepare to miscarry again. :cry: I am not sure if I am miscarrying or not.......But I do kinda think it has to do with that shot. My sister in laws was not directly related to the shot, it was related to a vitamin and pregestrone defficiency from the shot. One of those bizare side effects. :roll:
