I dont know anything about depression effecting fertility. However, I did take Effexor for depression and it worked wonderfully for me. I felt much better with it.  I will say it did decrease my sex drive though...... However, if I had been trying to concieve at that time I dont think it would have mattered if I was in the mood or not.  
Anyway, it worked for me. Good Luck!!
