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! Dr B
