cant get pregnant after depo provera

Hello, i had my son in 2008 and went on depo provera i was on it a year then i stopped then went back on it just for 1 shot then i went on the combined pill. I am now 25 and my son is 4, i have been having unprotected sex since i stopped birth control with no result. Im getting very worried. I have regular periods and i ovulate but still no baby.....plz help, thanks

Hi!
IF you were my patient, I would advise you that if you are having regular periods, that should mean that the depo effects have worn off.  I would check some tests such as TSH, prolactin, progesterone, FSH and a semen analysis.  If all was normal, I would suggest an HSG--dye study of the uterus to check to see if the tubes are open or blocked.
Hope this helps!

Thank you for your answer but these tests, can they be done at my local doctors or do I need to go to a specialist?

Thank you
