Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been on Depo shot, it will prevent you from getting pregnant. You will have to wait for its effects to subside. If you are planning for pregnancy, do not take your next scheduled shot and visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. If you are not successful with your pregnancy plans, you can also consider going ahead with getting infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
