My husband and I have been ttc for a year and a half now with no luck. I was on depo from 16-21 and am 25 now. Could this be the reason it is taking so long? I recently had lab work tsh/lipid profile/metabolic panel etc and everything was normal. Any suggestions on the next step to take?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that your history of depo is probably NOT the reason for the delay.  I would definitely begin a work up for you.  First things I would do is recommend ovulation predictors to see if you are ovulating consistently, and also a semen analysis to check his parameters.  If those are both fine, the next step might be a dye study to check the fallopian tubes for blockages ( an HSG).
Don't wait any longer!
Good luck!
