Dear Professor Winston,

After bleeding for three months straight I quit the depot. In 2007, I quit my shots and since then I was never able to have kids or even get pregnant
Did this depo burn all my eggs ? Or did it affect something or damage any else I should be worried about.
And i can’t understand why i’ve been trying to get pregnant for 13 years and nothing.

Dear K.,

The depot contraceptive should have no effect whatsoever on your fertility, though a few women take a few months to return to having normal periods after stopping it.  The most likely explanation for your infertility is that something else is wrong and you should see a competent gynecologist who can investigate this.

Best wishes
