will depo provera will affect my fertility?

User Profile
I am 17 years old and have had my depo provera shot twice. I have no period at all. I have always planned to have kids in the future after I got married and want to know if depo provera will affect my fertility. My mother never had fertility problems and there is no history of fertility problem in my family. I am on the depo provera for my extremely painful cramps that used to keep me home from school for 2 days every month.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. T

he effects of the depo provera which remains in the body for 6-12 months after the last injection. However, the periods will return. Your fertility will not be effectd by two doses of depo shots.

You should use the following natural methods for a rapid removal of the synthetic hormone from the body. Drink lots of water every day, eat lots of fresh raw vegetables, drink raw vegetable juice, sweat in a steam room or sauna, get lots of exercise and fresh air.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
