Thanks for using the forum.

I would recommend that you speak to you doctor about your concern. It is always best to make your doctor aware of all medications that you have been using during and just prior to pregnancy.  To the best of my knowledge there is no link between  the Depo-Provera shot and birth defects.

I hope this helps.
