Depo Provera Shot and HCG shot

I am currently taking Depo provera shots for birth control but am considering the HCG shots for weight loss. Can this decrease the affect of my depo shot and allow me to become pregnant?

I cannot find any literature that lists an interaction between Depo-Provera and growth hormone. However, one of the manufacturers I contacted stated that there haven't been any studies done with these 2 medications. Please discuss this with your ob/gyn as well.
